Theft of bike in Wimborne – CCTV appeal

16 January 2020
Officers investigating the theft of a bike in Wimborne are issuing a CCTV image of the suspect.

At around 11.40pm on Friday 20 December 2019 the victim, a 17-year-old boy, left his bike outside of TSB bank in The Square when someone stole it. 

The bike is described as a black Cannondale mountain bike with silver and red writing on it. 

Police Community Support Investigator Kate Hann, of East Dorset police, said: “The loss of the bike has caused a significant financial impact on the victim, who was working in a nearby shop at the time the bike was stolen in order to earn extra money to buy Christmas presents.

“I have obtained CCTV images of the suspect. While I appreciate they are not of the best quality, I am hoping someone may recognise him from his tattoos.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55190199911. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via
