CCTV appeal after cycle stolen from outside Welwyn Garden City supermarket
A MAN is fuming after his expensive bike was stolen from outside a supermarket in WGC.
Thamasis Mastrogiann had ridden his black component bike, worth �550, to Waitrose in Bridge Road on Sunday last week.
While carrying out his weekly shop inside the store, a thief cut off his bike chain attached to the cycle – which was secured to a rail.
When Thamasis, of WGC, appeared 10 minutes later at 1.35pm, his bike was gone.
He told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “I am speechless, sad and angry.
