Details of a number of burglaries in Milton Keynes have been released by Thames Valley Police Today.
The first dates back to May 4, between 6pm and 8pm, when a bike was stolen from a house in Stoke Road, Bletchley.
The owner of the bike had brought it into the kitchen from the garden shed where it is normally kept.
