STOLEN COFFEE BIKE FROM BALHAM, RANSOM REQUEST FROM THIEVES - HELP NEEDED AND REWARD OFFERED

Postby CBLDN » Thu Oct 18, 2018 9:54 am

Dear Nappy Valley Net Readers,

We are a local based company (Balham) who have a beautiful Coffee Bike that we rent for events, weddings, fashion shows and also do a lot of free work for charity www.coffeebike.london Our beautiful Coffee Bike and Van have been stolen from Balham, SW London on Monday night between 1952 and 2000 we have eight minutes of video footage of the four white men breaking in to the van (who we now believe to be Eastern European) and stealing both the van and the coffee bike. Three men hung around outside keeping watch whilst the other man was inside the van assuming he was hard wiring the van to start it. The bike was ready for a big job on the Tuesday and we were supposed to help raise funds for a charity event today.
It fills us with sadness and shock - we hate to let anyone down.

The coffee bike being so unique and just a few in the Country it will be hard to move on. The van is a long wheel base high roof white Ford Transit - Reg SG12 ZXA 
To make matters even worse, the thieves have called us twice to ask if we will meet them to exchange the van and bike for money!! The police have the video footage of the criminals and also the voice recording of the man who called.
If you can spread the word we would greatly appreciate it and anyone who can help us get our bike back will be looked after with coffee for a year and given a large reward.
Please see the attached photograph of our very unique bike.
THANK YOU so much

I really hope you get your bike back soon. Forgive me if this is a silly question but if you have video footage, why don't you post it here to see if anyone recognises the perps? Someone might recognise voice or clothes etc and could provide their info anonymously to help find the bike and bring a prosecution...

Thanks for the message. The police have the video footage and are circulating as it appears to be organised crime and part of a much bigger picture. They are also going to make sound better as you can hear the men speaking between themselves. The same goes for the voice recordings that we have of the two calls made regarding the ransom.
