THIEVES stole a customised racing bike from a home in Corringham.
On Saturday, May 18, the dark blue and black Cube bike was taken from the back garden of the house in Bellmaine Avenue when owner Dean Merchant popped out.
The bike costs a couple of thousand pounds new and was valued at about £800 to £1,000.
Over the years, it has been customised and had parts added to it which may be stripped off and offered for sale separately.
The theft occured between 10am and noon – call police on 101.
