One stolen bike recovered and one still missing - Great work NSW Police!

November 26, 2020 By Brad Kellas 4021 Recovered Stolen Bike


On 24 October 2020, thieves entered an apartment garage in Ryde, NSW, and broke into a storage cage, where they stole two bikes belonging to Alessandro and his wife.

After reporting the bikes stolen to police, Alessandro reported both his bikes stolen on BikeVAULT.  Keen to do everything to ensure the bikes could be found, Alessandro followed our recovery blueprint email, ensuring his stolen bikes were well recorded and identifiable.

Alessandro's efforts paid off when two weeks later he was contacted by the Balmain Police, who advised they had recovered his wife's Trek Marlin, after finding it during an unrelated search warrant and identifying it stolen on BikeVAULT.

Frome Alessandro.......

Big thank you for the police and this website that allowed us to recover my wife's bicycle. 

One home and now one to go!
