Recovered after 3 Days8 Mar 2023
A woman from Worcester Park was delighted to have her stolen Tern bike returned to her amazingly quickly after being put up for sale just days after the theft.
An unwitting purchaser had checked the provenance of the bike on BikeRegister, only to find it had been reported as stolen.
Owner Elvira Alibegic (pictured with our Police Liaison Officer, Nick Roach) said: “A person contacted me through BikeRegister and said my bike had been bought from an unknown person, but when they had checked the database, they found out it was stolen. I was able to collect my bike from a private address. It was in good condition, but the BikeRegister sticker had been scraped off leaving an obvious mark on the frame. I was very lucky to get the bike back just 3 days after being stolen."
