Canondale Mountain Bike, distinctive one fork only on the left of the front wheel.

Black with firestorm stickers on it.

Guy black hoodie, from Oxton Village, got into back yard, and out again with Bike.

Bike on rack but not locked (yes I know!)

Row of houses we live on scoped out today, guy in black hoodie on bike, checking out from front, saw me and whizzed off, must have checked around back also. Chose most expensive bike from the rack.

Gutted!!

Please any info let me know, keep an eye out, very distinctive bike.

similar to this

Is that expensive?
I saw a bike dumped the other week on the corner of my road. the next morning it had been stripped of wheels. You're taking a chance having anything of any value with Birkenhead smack rats in existance.

Police were not even interested despite the guy 'scoping' out earlier on and having that on very high res cctv.

Have brought other bike inside as they have also stolen the bloody lock from that back door!!!!

Yeah I did think of that, to be honest compeltely sick of this now. 2 cars with windows smashed in drive in last 12 months, scooter stolen, although recovered after they couldnt start it due to security device, dumped locally, dodgy guys sitting outside house openly talking about breaking in, police were great about that one though, and 2 guys jumped over back wall as they did tonight, although nothing taken then.

Totally fed up now. Is it any better anywhere else though?? Im moving at this rate.

Was really looking forward to summer hols, going to go riding with daughter, now have 1 bike between us and I cant afford another one, its totally crap this is.

Its so easy to get complacent about security.

Woodchurch is going worse again, it was meant to be really bad in the 80's.

I'd really pester the police, they do stop chavs on bikes and inspect the bike for parts. wink

Sorry to here about your bike and the other trouble.

Try not to lose heart, we had a whole host of trouble a coupel of years ago and felt powerless for a while be decided we weren't going to let them win. You need to make yourself a bit of a pain the @rse to the authorities but it does work. Things to try:

1. Keep reporting all suspicious and Anti-social behavoiur to the Police - always ask them for a srime number as it has to go on their system then and will get reported up the chain

2. Find out who your local PCSO's are and ask them to come and see you to discuss your problem

3. Keep a diayr of everything and record the crime numbers into it so that you're got a record

4. Get some ASB reporting forms from the council and keep sending them in

5. Find out who the senior officer is for Oxton (on the Police website) and write / email / phone them

6. There are "chat to the chief" webchats in the Police website once a month register for that and put your point accross.

7. Have you asked the coucil about alley gates if the scrotes are using the back-passages for access?

Good luck

Thanks for the advice AR1 I will do what you say. Very eager to write to them, as for alley gates dont think they will put them in conservation areas, but im not sure, will look into it.
