Officers investigating three burglaries in Rickmansworth are appealing for witnesses who may have any information.
The incidents took place at a property off the High Street, where the first victim returned home on Sunday, September 4 to find that a communal garage had been broken into, and that multiple items were missing, including two grey mountain bicycles.
Over the course of the next five days, more items were stolen, including sports equipment worth over £500, and a FROG branded children’s bicycle.
The garage is accessed by using a fob, with all residents having their own one. It is believed that the suspect(s) gained access via a stolen fob, as there were no signs of damage or forced entry.
PCSO Alan Waller, from the Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “If you were in the area between Sunday 4 September and Monday 9 September and believe that you saw any suspicious activity, or believe that you witnessed the incident taking place, please get in touch.
“I would also like to ask the public to keep an eye out for the children’s bike as it is quite distinctive. Please let us know if you believe you have been offered it for sale, or have found it abandoned. We are in possession of the serial number so we would very much like to reunite it with its rightful owner.”
