Hi, I am writing this post in the hopes that if someone approaches you to buy a orange-black Brompton bike (which looks like the one in the photo on this link: Stolen Brompton Bike), please note that it may be stolen property.
Here's the relevant info about my stolen bike:
Bike stolen on Wed Oct 13 from bike ramp in front of Sainsbury's Bermondsey Square (first ramp closest to entrance of Sainsbury's) at about 6:50pm
Brompton orange and black bike, model M3L, bike frame number: 1003140654
If you saw two suspicious people (one on a white bike) fiddling around with a lock on a bike around that time, please contact me or Jackie at the management office
The police have been informed and the case has been logged
Hi Philip, thanks for the commiseration! Yes, the management office at the square have reviewed the CCTV and obvious 2 people involved. I was told, that's why I know there were 2 people, one on a bike, acting as lookout and also to obscure somewhat while his mate did the bolt cutting/fiddling with lock. Cheers, Fran
I think I may have sent you a message on Facebook about this already but it's worth checking on the Gumtree site. A friend found his bike there and through some subterfuge and support of other cyclist friends managed to get it back undamaged. Best of luck,
