Inspector Karen Madge, who leads the Newcastle city centre Neighbourhood Policing Team, has said officers have also been able to reunite the bicycle with its owner. “This was a fantastic piece of police work by PC Lewins who acted on his instincts when he saw this suspect acting suspiciously with the bicycle,” said Insp Madge. “He used his knowledge of the city centre to try and re-trace the route taken by the man and that has led him straight to a bag containing the man’s ID.
“What’s more is that we were also able to reunite the bicycle with its rightful owner who was extremely grateful as she used it to transport her two children to nursery every day. “There have been a number of bike thefts in the city during lockdown and we have ran a number of dedicated operations to target thieves because we understand the impact these offences can have on victims. “That activity has seen a number of arrests and free bike marking events have also been held for NHS staff who have at times been targeted while on shift at the RVI. “We hope our commitment to targeting these types of offences reassures those who live, visit and work in the city centre every single day that we are here to keep you safe.”
