CCTV Appeal after a Motorbike was stolen in Birkdale

Click on to see larger image....MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives, in Sefton, have realised CCTV of a man they want to trace in connection with a burglary in Birkdale where a motorbike was stolen. Up to 4 offenders, including 1 woman, are believed to have been involved in the break in at the house in Liverpool Road, on Friday, 5 August 2016. After knocking at the front door and getting no reply the three male offenders tried to force their way inside the garage, 1st through the main garage door and then the side door. After failing to get in, the group targeted a UPVC kitchen door at the back of the house and after forcing entry using garden tools, stole the key to the garage when the victim's KTM motorbike was stored. Again, the offenders used the victim's own tools to damage locks on the motorbike and 2 mountain bikes which were also being stored in the garage. Detectives believe the offenders then wheeled all 3 bikes off the driveway and escaped. The victims returned to their house to find considerable damage had been caused to their property and their motorbike and mountain bikes missing. Detective Sergeant Jason Ennis from Marsh Lane CID said:- "This burglary was carried out by up to four offenders who were determined to get inside that property and steal the motorbike they believed was inside. By forcing their way in using tools they helped themselves to they have caused a huge amount of damage to the couple's home which has added to the distress they were already suffering from being burgled. This incident happened while the couple were out for a walk on Friday afternoon so I am keen to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious. A female offender tried the doorbell and when she didn't get an answer, the three male offenders scaled the side gate and broke in through the back door. This would have been a noisy and taken some time so potentially alerted neighbours or passers by. We are also keen to hear from anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV still taken from the victim's home CCTV system. If anyone knows who he is, please contact us on:- 0151 777 3841 or Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111."
