JE James Cycles had their warehouse broken into on Sunday 22nd August between the hours of 1.40am and 4.00am. They are currently fixing the damage caused by the thieves, but in the burglary had nearly 100 bikes stolen.

Andy Liversidge of JE James Cycles sent us this press release:

After the trauma of Sunday evening, the damage caused by the thieves is being fixed and extra precautions are promptly being put into place to stop such criminal activity. The thieves stole 97 bikes in total, all of which were boxed and not built. This is the biggest break in that we’ve ever experienced. The bikes were loaded in to two vans before the criminals fled the scene in the early hours of Sunday morning. One of the vans was a silver transit van, and the other was a white Iveco transit van. I’d like to inform our online customers that this will not effect our daily duties and orders will still be despatched and processed as normal. Any of our customers who have already placed orders that will be effected by this incident will be contacted as soon as possible.

The bikes we had stolen were a mixture of Giants and Dahon’s, so if you see anything then let us know.
