TWO garages on the same road in Gloucester were broken into on one night last week.

Unknown offenders struck twice in Merevale Road between 10pm on Thursday (April 25) and 7.30am on Friday (April 26).

After forcing entry to a wooden garage in a back garden they stole three bikes, waterproof motorbike clothing and a Dewalt cordless drill.

A workshop at the bottom of another garden was targeted but nothing was taken in that incident.

The stolen bikes are a red Raleigh Ace, Viking Peloton, which has many accessories and a computer fitted to it and a Trax TFS1 mountain bike with red frame and full suspension.

The total value of stolen property amounted to over £1000.

Anyone with information is urged to call 101, quoting incident 47 of April 26.
