Residents of a quiet seaside town were “terrorized” by a cyclist on an e-bike.
But when police were alerted and chased them to Rhos-on-Sea, they fled – and officers seized the high-tech bike.
Now the owner must provide proof of purchase if they want it back. And there might also be questions to answer.

“Unfortunately the cyclist fell and then fled, never to be found again, but the e-bike was found and seized.
“It is currently with us and will remain here until someone shows proof of ownership or the bike is crushed.”
Police added: ‘Until then it will at least not be used to terrorize the general public as they wander around and enjoy our beautiful seaside areas.’
