Stolen bike recovered by Police
Merseyside Police have recovered two stolen motorcycles in Ainsdale including the Off-Road Grass Track bike that was stolen from Redgate in Formby.
The bikes were found after a tracking device was activated by the owner of a Yamaha bike which was stolen from outside a property in Carnarvon Road, Southport, on the morning of Tuesday, 18 August.
Officers used the tracking device to trace the bike to a road in Ainsdale where at 11am yesterday, Tuesday, they found an unattended white van. Inside the van they discovered two bikes.
The first bike was the Yamaha and the second was later identified as a specialised off road grass track bike which has been taken from outside a property on Redgate, Formby in the early hours of Sunday 16 August. ( Click HERE to read the story)
A forensic examination of both bikes and the van have been carried out. Enquiries into the thefts are ongoing. Inspector Jim Atherton said: “The purchasing of additional vehicle security will ideally prevent its theft and tracking equipment can lead to its swift recovery and offenders being brought to justice.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Merseyside Police on 101 or the confidential Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
