Unfortunately not many people record their seriel numbers so it may be a long shot to try and get peoples bikes back. Also not many police appreciate what makes a bike valuable (not just to the person but financially). Many think if it has gears it is valuable. Lets hope they get their bikes back but I am sure that at this moment many are sitting in the back of Mt Druitt Police Station unclaimed.
Yesterday was an easy day.
