Bi­cy­cle thief is out and about

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

There have been three sep­a­rate bi­cy­cle thefts in Sey­mour dur­ing the past week.

On July 2, a red and black GT Avalanche moun­tain bike was stolen when the owner went to visit a friend in Monash Dve, Sey­mour.

The owner leaned the bike up against the fence and left it unat­tended for only 15 min­utes.

Dur­ing this time un­known of­fender(s) have seized the op­por­tu­nity to take the bike.

An­other moun­tain bike was stolen when the owner left it un­se­cured at the front of the Kings Park foot­ball club rooms while he went to footy train­ing on June 29.

The moun­tain bike was later re­cov­ered by a Sey­mour res­i­dent who found it ly­ing in the mid­dle of the Kings Park oval.

A third bike was stolen from the yard of a res­i­dence in Tar­combe Rd, Sey­mour, some time be­tween June 19 and 23.

The bike is de­scribed as an elec­tric Avanti Hy­brid and green in colour.

These thefts should be a re­minder for every­one to keep their valu­ables and pos­ses­sions se­cure at all times.

If any­one has seen or has any in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing these re­cent thefts phone the Sey­mour Po­lice Sta­tion on 5735 0200.

Gold ring lost

A Sey­mour res­i­dent has lost a sen­ti­men­tal item — a gold di­a­mond ring.

The ring is be­lieved to have been lost be­tween Tris­tan St and Sta­tion St in Sey­mour.

If any­one has in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this phone Sey­mour Po­lice Sta­tion on 5735 0200

Miss­ing a bike?

Sey­mour po­lice cur­rently have nu­mer­ous bi­cy­cles in their pos­ses­sion that have been found by mem­bers of the pub­lic.

Po­lice have been un­able to lo­cate own­ers and are ap­peal­ing to any­one that has lost a bike, and not yet re­ported it to po­lice, to please con­tact the sta­tion.

Up­graded se­cu­rity

IGA in Sey­mour has re­cently up­graded their CCTV se­cu­rity sys­tem.

The store has been plagued by thefts in re­cent months, how­ever this up­grade has en­abled po­lice to iden­tify of­fend­ers and bring them be­fore the court.

Good qual­ity CCTV footage is valu­able to po­lice in as­sist­ing with their in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

Any per­son who has in­for­ma­tion in re­la­tion to any of these or other of­fences is urged to phone their lo­cal po­lice sta­tion or Crimestop­pers on 1300 333 000.
