The owners of six bicycles, which officers suspect have been stolen in Thanet, are being asked to come forward and identify their property.
Kent Police officers seized two of the bikes from a man in Fairfield Road, Broadstairs during the early hours on Monday 24 August 2020. When patrols stopped the 18-year-old they also seized cutters, screwdrivers and broken locks. He was arrested and taken into custody on suspicion of theft.
Officers discovered another four bicycles following the search of a property in West Cliff Road in Ramsgate, all of which they believe may have been stolen.
The man arrested has been released pending further investigation and enquiries remain ongoing, which includes efforts to identify the owners of the bikes.
Officers have released pictures in the hope of tracing victims of theft who may not yet have reported their bike stolen. Anyone who recognises any of the bikes and believes one or more may belong to them should call the Kent Police appeal line 01843 222289 quoting reference 46/150083/20.
