PLEASE REMEMBER.  EVERYTHING I PUT OUT, IS A ‘WITNESS APPEAL’ - DID YOU SEE OR HEAR ANYTHING Huh
 
EYES & EARS !
 
As you know we have been having bikes stolen across RBWM.  PCSO Liz Davidson, PCSO Scott McSweeney and British Transport Police, will be organising another Bike Marking event, next Wednesday 22nd August 5 p.m. to 7.30 p.m.
 
We will be taking photos of your bike and details of the frame number to register on Bike register as well as marking them with a permanent stencilled registration number - ALL FOR FREE !
 
At a similar event at a Windsor Train station, we marked over 50 bikes.  Please make sure you have your bike marked.
 
Other events are being planned as we speak.  Another is planned for Monday 20th August 10 a.m. - 12.30 p.m. in Kidwells Park - another opportunity to get those bikes marked and registered.
 
Just to let you know we held a Bike marking event this week at the station, in Windsor with PCSO Liz Davidson and British Transport Police.  It was a great success and they marked over 50 bikes !
 
This crime happened on Wednesday in Windsor, but is a good news story for everyone and was built on a report, from a member of the public, who saw something odd - and did something about it, rather than walking on !
 
15/8  Wednesday Police received a report from a witness, about a young man cutting the lock from a bike in a bike rack, in a suspicious manner.  The police asked the RBWM CCTV, to locate and follow them.  They confirmed a sighting and the fact that they were acting in a suspicious manner, moving around Central Windsor, visiting bike racks.  The police attended and located 2 young men who matched the descriptions from the CCTV team who were both found on bikes - one on a black mountain bike.  They were stop checked and searched.  One was found to be in possession of a pair of bolt croppers and was arrested, upon suspicion of bike theft and going equipped.
A brilliant example of the public supplying brilliant intelligence, the police working with CCTV to get a brilliant result.
 
Please use your eyes and ears while out and about - you could see something like this at any time - remain alert.  If you saw anything suspicious around bikes - please remember it may be a crime in progress and therefore should be 999’d immediately so that we have an opportunity to ‘apprehend’ the offender.
 
Our grateful thanks to the witness who saw something suspicious - and did something about it.
 
The crime reported:
15/8  3.45 p.m.  William Street.  A witness reported a young man acting in a suspicious manner near some bike and he appeared to be cutting off the lock and riding away on a black mountain bike.  This was the initial report, which resulted in the above arrest.
 
More thefts of bikes, with full descriptions - if you see this combination of men acting suspiciously near bikes - dial the 999 number immediately
16/8  Thursday  2.20 p.m.  Leisure Pool Car park X 2.  1.  Locked up bike stolen.  This was captured on CCTV.  Two young men arrived.  One shielded the other from the CCTV while he cut the lock.  Descriptions:  1.  The man who cut the lock looked of Eastern European appearance, about 40, olive skin, dark grey base ball cap - worn backwards, long side burns wearing a grey / white jumper with a square black logo, light coloured jeans and black shoes.  2.  Early 40s, possibly Asian / Chinese,5’5’’, light build with pot belly, black hair, wearing a white shirt, black jacket, dark trousers and dark brown shoes.  A third man appears with them on the CCTV - black, bald, black jacket, grey tracksuit bottoms, black & white trainers. 2.  Locked up bike stolen from a bike rack.  1.  A  black & white, Carrera man’s, mountain bike - WITH FRAME NUMBER.  2.  Bike - A grey, Ridgeback, hybrid bike.
