Merseyside Police have
recovered 2 stolen motorcycles in Ainsdale
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 Tuesday, 18 August 2015. Officers
used the tracking device to trace the bike to a road in Ainsdale, where Officers
found an unattended white van. Inside the van they discovered 2 bikes. The 1st
bike was the Yamaha and the 2nd 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 2015. 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.
