MOUNTAIN bikes worth thousands of pounds have been stolen from a shop in North Yorkshire.

Ten machines, together worth £9,000 were taken during the 2am raid on the shop in Southgate, Pickering.

The raid took place yesterday (Thursday, January 10) and it is believed the thieves used a white van to transport the stolen bikes and may have been travelling with a small, dark coloured car.

Detective Constable Steve Lloyd said: “I would like to speak to anyone who may have seen a white van and small dark car acting suspiciously in the area at around the time of the burglary and urge them to contact the police or Crimestoppers straight away.

“I also need to speak to anyone who may be offered a mountain bike, matching the description of those stolen, for sale in unusual circumstances and ask them to get in touch.”

The stolen bikes are a washed denim coloured and a black Trek Skye S, a Trek Cobra in black and white, a black and grey Trek 6000, a Trek 3500 Disc, a black Trek Superfly AL Elite, a black and white Trex X-Caliber, a black and grey Trek Mamba, a denim wash coloured Trek Lush and a white Cannondale Trail.

Contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option two and ask for Steve Lloyd. Alternatively information can be emailed to or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.
