Urgent! Bike stolen from Brownhills

Untitled 9

Did you see anyone take a silver bike from outside Downes Newsagents? Image from Google Streetview.

Hi folks – while I’m prodding the hardware with a long stick, there’s an important shout out I need to make for a young lad who does a paper round for Downes Newsagents in Brownhills.

This morning (Sunday 19th April 2015) between 9:30 and 10:30am a silver Raleigh mountain bike belonging to him was stolen from outside the shop in High Street, Brownhills. The chap only had it for a couple of weeks to enable him to do the round. He’s understandably very upset.

Here’s a young man who’s trying to earn an honest pound, and some scrote steals his wheels. Let’s see if we can get the bike back – after all, it could be your stuff they nick next…

The bike is silver, and has 21 gears. If you know someone that’s suddenly pitched up with a bike matching that description that you feel could be the one in question, please do contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

You can also mail me in confidence: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.

    Thanks Bob, Lewis has used his wages to replace his bike, but a massive heartfelt THANK YOU to those who offered him their own bikes and even money to replace the one that’s been stolen. And thanks for you for sharing the story 🙂
