15 warrants served, 9 arrested and bikes seized

MERSEYSIDE Police have arrested 9 males and seized 5 motorbikes and 4 quads after 15 warrants were executed across Merseyside, on Thursday, 9 March 2017, as a response to an illegal gathering of motorbikes in Merseyside, in 2016.

Warrants were carried out at premises in Knowsley and Liverpool resulting in the recovery of the bikes, a small amount of drugs and mobile phones.

The arrests are for the offence of causing a public nuisance and follow an investigation into incidents on 7 November 2016, when numerous calls were made to emergency services reporting multiple motorbikes, including off road vehicles, driving dangerously across Merseyside.

Detective Chief Inspector Cheryl Rhodes, who is leading the investigation, said:- "This arrest day is another successful step forward in our investigation. I would like to thank the members of our communities who have provided information so far, as this is vital in taking such positive action and ultimately bringing offenders to justice. Individuals and groups of riders who take to the roads in a criminal, reckless and anti social manner show a complete disregard for public safety and will never be tolerated by Merseyside Police and our partners. We know how strongly that members of our communities feel about these incidents and will continue to take positive action to seize those bikes we believe are being used illegally on our roads, and deal with associated criminality. Action is constantly being taken behind the scenes in relation to incidents such as this, and we appreciate people's patience as we thoroughly investigate each 1. Incidents on our roads continue to show the very real dangers to pedestrians, Officers, riders and other road users. We are determined to make our roads safer through all our available powers, and the continued response we have seen today is once again thanks to information provided by our community. I would urge anyone with information which enables us take these bikes out of circulation and make our streets safer to keep coming forward."

Anyone with information on who is using these bikes and where they are being stored is urged to call:- 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
