One man convicted and a second charged over bicycle thefts
Police say it was rewarding returning some of the stolen property to the rightful owners
Following the theft of a number of bicycles in and around Banbury Town Centre last year a 32 year old man from Banbury has been convicted for the crime.
An investigation by the Banbury Neighbourhood Team has led to a second man also being charged. He will be summoned to court in the next few weeks
Police first arrested a man on September 10.
PC James Paul from the Banbury Neighbourhood Team has said “I am pleased that we were able to secure the charges against both suspects. The theft of a pedal cycle can be very impactive, particularly when used as a main method of transport.
“It was very rewarding for us to be able to return some of the stolen property to the rightful owners. Special mention should also go to PCSO Sanford who played a key part in identifying the offenders and securing the evidence needed. It really was a great team effort.”
