Heartless thieves have stolen £3,000 worth of community equipment from a Lynn charity.

The culprits broke into an outbuilding at the Discovery Centre in Columbia Way, North Lynn, over the weekend and stole three bikes and a number of power tools.

They forced entry between 11pm on Friday night and 9am on Sunday morning.

The bikes, which were purchased by the centre for a cycling course, are described as white with red and blue stripes on the cross bar and the word PINA in black writing.

Superintendent Carl Edwards said: “These stolen bikes, which are owned by the Discovery Centre, are used for the benefit of local people.

“Those responsible clearly have very little in the way of a conscience, but I’d urge them to think long and hard and return them.

“If anybody knows who stole them we would appreciate a call so we can recover them as soon as possible and deal with these thieves.”

Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious in the area at the time, or has further information about the whereabouts of stolen items or those involved in the theft.
