Ongoing bike crime

The recent Neighbourhood Watch police report once again shows the typical weekly theft of four or five bicycles from around the Chichester area.

These are usually of high quality, taken from the backs of houses, stolen for resale and not casual thefts.

Could the police authorities state how many bicycles are stolen annually in the Chichester area, and what are they going to do about this ongoing crime?
