The incident happened at 2.20am on Sunday July 27.

The thief was white, aged in his 20s, has dark, cropped hair and was wearing a red T-shirt and grey bottoms.

PC Jamie Welsh said: “We have been examining several hours of CCTV from the area during these past few days to see if he has been captured on camera. We’re hoping to speak with anyone who may recognise the man from the description provided or who saw him cycling away from the scene of the crime.”
