A well-known local photographer is appealing for information after her pushbike was stolen from outside her property in Ryde overnight.
Sienna Anderson, who regularly contributes photos to Island Echo, believes that the incident was pre-planned as a pipe was cut through to gain access to the Trek ladies bike. Furthermore, a side gate was kicked in a few weeks ago with evidence that the bike had been moved.
The green and black bike is the latest bicycle to be stolen in Ryde. It’s known that around Christmas time a bike was stolen from Ryde Pier Head too. Unfortunately, Police are unwilling to investigate either offence any further and therefore vital CCTV cannot be accessed.
This latest incident happened on Union Street.
Local businesses are being asked to check their CCTV to see if the crime, or suspect, were captured on camera.
UPDATE @ 14:30 – Sienna has been in touch with Island Echo to inform readers that her stolen bike has now been found, and reunited with her.
Sienna has said:
“I never thought I would be saying this…
“Thank s to the power of Social Media, friends, family and the lovely people that live on this Island my bike had been found…
“It was taken to a disused building in Ryde where people have been breaking in and using it as a doss house, only thing is it’s currently manned at night now and they were chased off – leaving my bike behind…
“Thank you, everyone, for all your help and support – amazing”
