·1-min read

Twenty stolen bikes have been discovered in a police raid in east London.

The Metropolitan Police said it wants to return as many as possible to their owners, calling on those who believe any of the stolen bicycles belongs to them to get in touch.

It comes after officers executed a warrant at a commercial property in Wick Lane, east London at approximately 5am on Wednesday.

Along with the bikes, £50,000 was also recovered, the Met Police said.

Officers made the discovery after intelligence was gathered suggesting that stolen bikes were being stored at the premises before being sold online.

A 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods.

Police said he was taken to an east London police station and was subsequently released under investigation.

Sergeant Robert Aston, from the TSG Proactive and Wanted Offender Unit, said: "We will never tolerate theft in London and we are glad to have recovered these stolen bikes.

"We'd like to return as many bikes and parts as possible to their owners so please get in contact with us if you have had your bike stolen and recognise them in the images."

Police are encouraging anyone who recognises any of the bikes in the images to contact 101 quoting CAD 930/27Oct, or email MO7mailbox-.NEProacticeunit@met.police.uk, providing proof of purchase.
