Be-cycling on the Costa Blanca

Police in Murcia have put unclaimed stolen and recovered bicycles to good use and given them to the region’s Association for Refugees and Migrants – though the rightful owners can reclaim them at any time.

THE National Police delivered several bikes to PAREM, having been in storage at the El Carmen District Police Station for some time.

Officers tried to locate the legitimate owners “by all possible means,” but given the unlikelihood of finding many of them, it was decided “to use them in solidarity.”

When these bicycles are being used rather than discarded, if anyone recognises them as their own, they should contact the El Carmen District Police Station.

Each has been marked with a sticker that identifies them as the bikes given by the National Police.
