A disgruntled Fulwood resident has taken to a local community group to let his community know he was burgled on Thursday, 29 July whilst he, his partner and two-year-old daughter were asleep.


Stephen Lacy wrote that they woke up just after the perpetrators had left to find a giant hole in the roof of their garage, and four electric bikes missing.

Their workshop had also been flooded.

The thieves gained access via the neighbour at the back, stole tools from their shed and used them to smash through the roof.

Stephen and his partner have spoken to neighbours to get more CCTV and have lots of footage of the perpetrators.

Stephen is keen to bring the thieves to justice as their actions are affecting the whole community.

He wrote: “The three of them look like teenagers, they wear hoods and masks but could potentially be identified from the videos by someone who knows them.

“We have footage of 2 vehicles we think were involved, leaving the scene onto Garstang Road at around 4am. A white van with the right tail light out and a blue car. We are not sure of the make or license plate numbers.

“The stolen bikes: They were all quite unique so we are hoping that they will be noticed by someone. Two bikes were built by us.

“The other two were imported specially and there are only a few in the UK. Please have a look at the four bikes in the pictures and reach out to us if you see them.”
