POLICE have released CCTV footage of two suspects after a spate of bike thefts from high schools and colleges across town.

The first incident came at Priestley College, when one bike was stolen between 10am and 11am on Thursday, January 9.

Two bikes were stolen the following day, one from Birchwood High School between 8am and 3pm and another from Bridgewater High School between 8.30am and 3.15pm.

A 26-year-old man from Warrington previously attended a voluntary interview with police as part of investigations, but no further action was taken.

Cheshire Police is now appealing for help from members of the public, with a picture of two men who officers wish to speak to over the thefts having been issued.

PC Donna Stevens said: “Our enquiries in relation to the thefts are continuing, and as part of my investigation I have released a CCTV image of two men who may have important information.

“If you think you recognise them or know who they are, please call Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 20000021503, give details through our website or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

“I would also like to appeal directly to the men in the image to get in touch.”
