British Transport Police have released images of people wanted for a number of bike thefts across Sussex, including two at Horsham station.

PC Burstow added: “Sadly bicycles are a popular target for thieves but there are lots of things people can do to make sure their property is adequately marked and secured.

“It’s important to remember to register your bike and ensure a solid lock is used to secure it. If a bike is adequately marked, it makes it much easier to identify and therefore helps reduce the risk of becoming a victim of bike theft.

“BTP officers regularly conduct cycle crime awareness surgeries at stations across Sussex to offer crime prevention advice and identify the top locations for bike theft, targeting them through covert and overt policing operations to catch would-be offenders in the act.

Anyone with any information can contact British Transport Police on 0800 405040 quoting reference B17/LSA of 2/1/13 and giving the image number.
