Crawley teenagers stolen bike recovered by quick thinking Tilgate Councillor



Tilgate Councillor Francis Guidera has come to rescue of a young lad who had his bicycle stolen from outsode Tilgate Newsagents.

Speaking to Crawley News 24 he said:

“I shared a shocking Facebook post this morning, about a bike stolen from a young lad outside Tilgate newsagents at 6:50am this morning while he waited to do his paper round.

I received contact from an anonymous person in the town centre this afternoon, who had seen the bike and said it was in the area so I jumped in my car, drove towards the town hall.

As I passed the police station I saw a car going in so they kindly sent a load of officers out to look for it too. After 2 laps of the town centre and highstreet on foot I saw it next to a shop window in the Broadway with somebody who claimed to have bought it for £20 off somebody else. I told them it matched the description of a stolen bike and the police were on their way and they just walked away…

Very pleased to report that the bike is now at Crawley station waiting to be reunited with its very happy owner!

Thank you so much to Crawley Police for coming out in force to hunt for it with me and thank you to the anonymous tip off for the information.

And of course well done to everybody who shared it on social media!

The police will be seeking to prosecute if they can.”
