Ipswich: Mum’s delight after stolen bikes returned
A VICTIM of theft today spoke of her delight after some of the stolen possessions were returned to her.
Mum-of-three Cindy Holian was devastated after thieves broke into her home twice in just seven days.
Ms Holian, of Tuddenham Avenue, spoke to the Star of her heartache and anger after thieves stole her phones and purse in one break-in and two children’s bikes just days later.
The two bicycles, belonging to two of her daughters, Daisy, nine and Molly, 11, were taken when thieves broke into her garden shed.
Ms Holian, who is also mother to Violet, three, was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and bought the bikes for her children to cheer them up after “a hell of a year.”
Now the bikes have been returned and the youngsters are overjoyed to have their toys returned to them.
“My girls are really happy,” Ms Holian said. “We weren’t expecting to get them back.
