Cycle thefts in Southside & Newington

Last year was a busy year for cycle thefts in the ward. This year is shaping up much worse.

Buried deep in figures just released by Lothian and Borders Police is an 85% increase in bicycles stolen in the ward during April/May 2010 compared to the same two months in the previous year. That is 48 cycles thefts reported in the two months of this year compared to 26 in the same period last year. That compares with 266 stolen in the ward in the period April '09 to March '10 and 199 in the previous year.
