A bike and power tools worth ‘thousands of pounds’ have been stolen in a burglary.
Police said the offenders climbed over the back gate of a property on Chapel Street in Rishton, forced open a garage door and stole a distinctive white, blue and black frame mountain bike with yellow rimmed wheels, branded with ‘YT Industries’.
They also took a green Bosch jigsaw, a red and black bicycle stand, a black Makita drill and a toolbox containing various bike repair tools.
PS Peter Moore, of Blackburn Police, said: “The owner of the bike is absolutely devastated that it was taken, especially given that it was locked up in the garage which the offenders have managed to break into by cutting the lock.
“If you have seen this bike or the power tools, perhaps you have been offered them for sale, please give us a call as soon as possible. It would be great if we could reunite the victim with their property.”
The incident happened between 10.30pm on Friday, September 4 and 5am on Saturday, September 5. Call PS Moore on 01254 353901 or 101 quoting incident reference 318 of September 5.
