BIKES worth an estimated £22,000 were stolen from a Poundbury shop.
Police are investigating two burglaries in the village, in Dorchester, and have appealed for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
The first incident was reported at just after 1am on Thursday, November 24, of a break-in at Chasing Tails Bicycle Repairs, at Buttermarket.
It was reported that three bicycles, with a combined value estimated at £22,000, had been stolen.
The stolen bicycles were a black Evil Chamois Hagar gravel bike, a grey and black Transition Patrol all terrain bike and a red Santa Cruz V10 downhill all terrain bike.
A further burglary was reported at a residential garage in Widcombe Walk at around 2.15am on Friday, November 25. An orange KTM off road motorbike was stolen.
Officers investigating the incidents said due to the close proximity, they are considering the possibility they could be linked.

“I would urge anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area during the early hours of Thursday, November 24 and Friday, November 25.
“I would also urge residents with home CCTV systems or doorbell cameras to review their footage for anything that might assist us.
“Finally, I would like to hear from anyone who comes across a bicycle or motorbike matching the descriptions of those that were stolen being offered for sale locally or online in unusual circumstances.”
