Two bicycles worth £1,500 in total were stolen in two days in Wanstead.
Police are appealing for information after a bike was stolen from a conservatory and another was taken from a shed.
The first happened at a Leicester Road address. The bicycle, which was left in the conservatory between 6pm on March 4 and 8pm on March 5, was stolen by a suspect who approached from the back garden.
The victim believes the metal gate in an alleyway next to the house may have been left open.
The bike, worth £1,000, is white and has the words “Secteur” and “Specialised” on its frame.
