One Marked Bike Leads To Recovery of 10 More
Cyclist Danielle Thornton had her bike stolen along with 10 others from the underground car park at the building where she lives in Leeds.



All the bikes were double locked with chains and D locks but only Danielle’s was marked and registered to BikeRegister.



The gang of bike thieves gained access to the car park in a van and used power tools to get through the bike locks.



The car park was monitored by CCTV cameras and a short time later, all 11 bikes were recovered by police during a house raid. The raid was prompted by another bike theft the same gang had carried out on the other side of the city.



Danielle said: “I received a call from police to say that the tamper proof BikeRegister sticker on my bike frame had led to them being able to trace my contact details on BikeRegister, the national cycle database.



“Mine was the only one with a BikeRegister sticker on it, but now the others will get their bikes back too as we know the owners live in the same building as me!”
