BRITISH Transport Police (BTP) officers are appealing for help in tracing these men in connection with cycle thefts in Barnham.

Officers would like to speak to the man pictured in image 1 after a bike was stolen from Barnham railway station between 6pm on Wednesday, September 4 and 6.15pm on Thursday, September 5.

Investigators are also seeking help in tracing the man in images 7a and 7b.

Officers believe he may have information about a cycle that was stolen from Barnham station between 8.10am and 6.30pm on Monday, August 19.

PC Billy Burstow said: “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.

“We will continue to work closely with train operating companies to tackle cycle crime.”

Anyone with any information about the incidents or who recognises the people pictured in the images should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference B16/LSA of 3/12/13 quoting the image number.
