Police search squat and remove 36 stolen bikes
Eyewitnesses got in touch with ActonW3.com today to inform us that there had been Police activity in Birkbeck Road yesterday afternoon. They said that Police had unloaded a large number of bikes into a van.
We asked Acton Central Safer Neighbourhood Team for further information and they told us they had searched a property on that road recently after a member of the public alerted them that the building in question was a squat and that there was suspicious activity going on there.
A Police Constable from the team told us: "We searched the squatted property on Birkbeck Road and found 36 bikes and 2 mopeds. We removed these yesterday and are now in the process of sorting through and trying to repatriate them.
"If anyone has had a bike stolen recently, we would urge them to get in touch with Acton Central Safer Neighbourhood Team (contact details in box, right) either by phone or email. We will need whatever information people can give us about their bikes: serial numbers, make, model, colour etc."
Police arrested a man in connection with the operation.
