Police in York are investigating the theft of a mountain bike valued in excess of £6,500.
The grey Cielo bike with orange lettering on the frame, custom built in the USA by Chris King, was taken from outside a property on Gladstone Street, off Huntington Road, at about 3pm on Friday 27 September 2013.
It was left unattended for a matter of moments when a group of four or five teenage boys are suspected of making of with it along the river away from the city centre.
The owner of the bike is offering a £500 reward for information that leads to the arrest and charge of the suspects.
PC Tom Tate, of the York City and East Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “This very distinctive custom-built mountain bike is of great value to the owner, both in terms of investment and sentimentally too.
“I am appealing for witnesses and information that could assist the investigation to locate the bike and bring the offenders to justice.
“If the information leads to the arrest and charge of the offenders, the owner is willing to give a £500 reward.”
If you can assist the investigation, please contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, selection option 2, and ask for Tom Tate. Or email PC Tate here.
