Police want to speak to this man following the theft of a bicycle from the cycle racks at Bletchley railway station.

Officers have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the theft which took place, on Monday, July 7.

PC Hollie Taylor said: “The victim, a 24-year-old man from Milton Keynes, secured his white-framed racing bike in the dedicated cycle racks at Bletchley rail station. When he returned to collect it later that day, he discovered it missing.

“Enquiries have been ongoing since the theft took place and I am today able to release a photograph of a man I would like to identify and speak to as I believe he will have key information about this incident.”

British Transport Police is cracking down on cycle thefts, and now have a dedicated team of officers specifically focused on tackling the issue.
