Brand-new bikes worth £350 were stolen from a Holbrook shed – just hours after they had been bought.

Police were called at 2pm on Tuesday, May 5 after the theft of the two adult bikes from a home in Berners Field.

The owners said the theft had taken place sometime during the night before and that one bike had only arrived that day.

One was worth £200 and the other was worth £170, with the owner saying their theft was “very upsetting”.

Residents have been urged to review the security of their sheds, garages as outbuildings in recent weeks following a series of similar incidents across Suffolk.
