Police launch crackdown after more than 30 bikes stolen in Watford in last fortnight
Police have made a number of arrests during a crackdown on bike thefts in Watford this week.
Two youths were arrested on suspicion of bike theft and shoplifting yesterday after officers searched a number of addresses in the early morning.
Four other youths have been arrested after similar searches throughout the week.
The move comes after 36 bikes have been stolen across Watford in the last fortnight.
Inspector Phil Moss, who led the operation, said: “We need to try and bring these bike thefts down.
“People are paying around £700 for their bikes and then youths are coming along and stealing them and then selling them on for £50.”
