Members of the public are being asked to help locate a bicycle which was stolen from outside Stowmarket Library.

The theft took place around 1.30pm on Friday, October 13, from outside the library in Milton Road North after the bike was left unattended for a matter of minutes.

The bicycle is described as a custom-made Edison racing cycle, which has a burnt orange frame, with chrome half front forks, dropped bars and an orange bar wrap.

The victim has used the bike to ride thousands of miles to raise money for charity.

Following initial police enquiries, a suspect was identified and a 17-year-old boy from Stowmarket has subsequently been charged with theft of a pedal cycle in connection with this incident. He is due to appear before Ipswich Youth Court on Thursday, November 16.

The bike has not been recovered though and police are appealing for anyone who may have seen it to make contact.

It is believed it may have been discarded in Hollingsworth Road later on in the day on October 13, however this area was searched and it was not located.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Stowmarket Neighbourhood Response Team on 101 quoting reference 67216/17.
