Mum’s plea for help as thieves steal children’s bikes as they played at Keady Glen

Christmas present one of two bikes taken from 12-year-olds

Cruel thieves have left two children devastated after stealing their bikes.

The incident happened at Keady Glen at around 2.30pm today (Saturday).

One of the bicycles – a brand new black-coloured ‘Ignite Aggressor’ mountain bike with full suspension – was a Christmas present. It had a Boyd’s Cycles sticker on it.

The other bicycle stolen was a men’s blue and grey GT mountain bike.

Both boys had been playing in the area when the thieves appeared out of nowhere in a dark grey coloured Vauxhall Vectra car.

CaitrĂ­ona Tierney said her son Eoghan and his friend James were “very upset” and has asked anyone who may have any information to come forward.

She told Armagh I : “The boys had left them sitting to climb a bank. They saw the car driving off with the bikes hanging out and the boot up.

The car actually went over Keady hill past Fairgreen. James’s granny saw it.

“We’re just so angry that people think they can just do that.”
