Specialised bike used by disabled teen stolen in Southdown Road, Harpenden
A Harpenden family have been left devastated after the specialised bike their 15-year-old disabled son uses on cycle rides has been stolen.
Police are appealing for information after the specially adapted bike was stolen from a garage block in Southdown Road between 4pm on September 15 and 3pm on September 22.
The specialist Piggyback Mark 2 disability bike, sold by Mission Cycles, costs £500 and was stolen with two other bikes - two unisex mountain bikes, one of which was red.
PCSO Paul Fletcher from the Harpenden & Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team said: "A family has been left distraught after the theft of this specialised bike used to take their son out on regular cycle rides.
"We would like to hear from anyone who has been offered any of the bikes for sale. We will do everything we can to trace them.
"Always make sure you keep your valuables, including power tools and pedal cycles, secure."
Anyone who saw the theft, has been offered the bike for sale or knows who may be responsible, contact PCSO Fletcher by calling 101 and quoting F2/13/1262.
