Warracknabeal Police are appealing for witnessed to a brazen theft of a bicycle from the footpath near the Royal Mail Hotel on Monday morning.

“We would value anyone who saw this bike either being ridden or taken away and would appeal to anyone who witnessed the theft to call Warracknabeal Police or to ring the Crimestoppers numbers as soon as possible,” Sgt Newell said.
