Sark hit by spate of bicycle thefts

Post by GD on Tue 12 Apr 2011, 8:41 pm

The car-free Channel Island of Sark has been hit by a spate of bicycle thefts.

Bob Parsons, editor of the Sark Scribe, said in the past most bikes taken have been found nearby but recently many have been recovered with seats missing.

He said: "This is not the norm in Sark, it's virtually a crime-free island and we'd like to keep it that way."

An electric mobility car was also stolen and damaged and its owner Ronnie Stokes said the thefts have been a nuisance to everyone.

Sark does not have its own police force and Guernsey Police can only come to the island when invited by the seigneur, the island's lord.

Ah the Sark bike seat theft , i feel there might be an opening for a entrepreneur to invent a seat bag that you carry with you . as for a police officer , send one of ours over on shift , it is not exactly rocket science now is it .
