Do you recognise this BMX bike?

It was stolen in a burglary from a house in London Road, Crawley just after midnight on February 2.

The intruder went into the conservatory and took the bike before riding off on it towards Tushmore roundabout. The occupants of the house were in at the time and one of them gave chase but could not keep up with the burglar.

The bike, a customised BMX, is an FBM make and has an anodised purple front wheel and a black rear wheel with the writing Primo on it. The seat is tan leather and says Odyssy in gold, it has gold pedals and on the main frame are a number of stickers, including a graffiti written style sticker which says 'federal'. The bike is worth £700.

A 15-year-old boy from Crawley was arrested on suspicion of burglary and bailed until March 20.
