Witham: School boy reunited with stolen bike
Main article content
Thanks to the efforts of a Witham Special Constable, a boy has been reunited with his push bike after it was reported to have been stolen while he was at school.
The bike had been reported stolen from outside the school on Conrad Road in Witham on Friday 26 March.
Last weekend, Saturday 10 April, while on patrol, Special Constable Simon Jesse found a bike he believed had been stolen.
After issuing an appeal on the Essex Police Braintree district page to try and find the bike's owner, SC Jesse was able to get in contact with the boy's parents.
He returned the bike to its rightful owner, just a day later.
"I'd like to thank everyone who shared our Facebook appeal" said Special Constable Jesse.
"By working with the community, I was able to locate the bike's owner and make sure it was returned to him as soon as possible.
"Witham is a special community and one that I am very proud to be a part of."
