Seemingly there has been a number of burglaries from properties in Tarvin and surrounding area. The culprits are targeting those with expensive bicycles and are coming prepared with tools to enable them to either break the cycle locks or remove doorways / other security features in order to access the bikes. Local police are aware and have made contact with local residents who they have seen with bikes on vehicles in order to warn them of the issue and to be vigilant.

Cheshire Police offer the following advice for all cyclists:

"Bicycles can be some of the easiest items for thieves to target. Protect yourself from becoming a victim by following some simple steps:

  • Get a good bike lock
  • Lock your bike to something secure, even if only for a few minutes and avoid isolated places.
  • Lock up removable parts (e.g. wheels) and take light fittings with you
  • Have your bike's frame security-marked or engraved
  • Take a clear colour photograph of your bike and make a written record of its description, including any unique features
  • make a note of the frame/serial number.
  • At home, keep your bike in a secure garage or shed and keep the door
