A friend who has a unit in one of those industrial buildings which have been converted to art studios has told me that a couple of blokes were renting a unit recently and working on bikes. All the bikes arrived during the night in vans. The police came and next morning they vacated, looking sheepish. Clearly something dodgy was going on and it would appear that they didn’t get arrested, probably due to not enough evidence.
So if anyone out there knows someone who has such a unit, please tell them to be on the look out for these guys. They are young white English blokes with local accents. The unit was in Leyton and chances are they may have relocated nearby. No doubt if they can be identified elsewhere a bit of surveillance could be done this time to get some evidence against them.
