POLICE are appealing for information and witnesses following the theft of a distinctive bike in St Albans which has sentimental value to its owner.

The bike, a 1997 Gary Fisher Quick Pierce gold BMX, with silver chrome forks and black wheels, was stolen last weekend, November 4-6, from Raymer Close in the city.

One or more offenders forced their way into the victim’s locked garage and stole the bike.
