The bikes were recovered from a home in Thetford on Monday, November 1, and officers believe they may have been stolen from the area.

A teenage boy was arrested in connection with the theft of the bicycles and has been bailed until November 22.

It comes after a number of thefts have been reported in recent months and police are reminding people to think about the steps they can take to make sure their bikes are secure.

Cyclists are being encouraged not to leave bikes in isolated or dimly-lit places and, where possible, do not to lock them up in the same place on a regular basis.
