Increase in thefts of mopeds / small motorcycles

Your local Policing team has identified a recent increase in thefts of mopeds / small motorcycles in your area.  The majority of these crimes appear to have occurred overnight between 10pm and 7am with suspects seen to often be in pairs and ride off on the stolen bike with no helmets.  Arrests have been made and our enquiries are ongoing at this time to identify any other persons responsible.  We would recommend a good quality bike chain to secure your vehicle such as the “Secured By Design” Home Office recommendation.  

Please continue to report any suspicious behaviour in your area which may assist us in keeping you and your community safe.  You can do this by contacting police via our website here for non-urgent matters or phoning 101, please phone 999 for an emergency. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
