Investigation launched after high value bike theft
The theft of a bicycle worth £6,000 is being investigated by North Yorkshire Police.
It was revealed by the force that the Colnago CLX model was stolen from a shed of a house on Forest Road in Northallerton.
Police believe that the theft took place at some point between December 1st and 18th and PC Jon Grainge, of Northallerton Safer Neighbourhood Team, described the bike as being "highly distinctive".
"I am sure it will draw the attention of anyone who sees it. If you have seen the bike or can help to identify the thieves, I urge you to contact the police or Crimestoppers as soon as possible," he said.
Police announced that the bike is black and red with Shimano wheels and it is also fitted with time trial handlebars, which allow the rider to clasp their hands in front of them.
British Transport Police recently launched an appeal for information after three bikes were stolen from Billericay rail station within 20 minutes on September 13th.
