Cycles seized as man arrested in connection with thefts


A man has had a number of bicycles seized from his address after being arrested last night (Thursday).

The 19-year-old was one of two men arrested last night who are currently in custody in connection with the theft of pedal cycles in Boston.

A police spokesman said that shortly before 9pm a 17-year-old man, from Kirton, was arrested in the Main Ridge East area of the town after two offenders were seen to enter a private garden and attempt to steal a bike.

Later that evening, a 19-year-old man from Joy Paine Close was also arrested and a number of cycles seized from his address.

The spokesman said: “Cycle theft is one of the ‘Boston Big Three’ crimes and local officers have recently launched a campaign aimed at reducing the number of victims”.

The two men remain in Boston custody being interviewed.

Anyone with information should call police on non-emergency number 101 quoting incident number 488 of July 3 2014.
