Police Appeal For Info After Motorbike Stolen From Garage

motorbike nov 2015Police on St Mary’s are appealing for information after a motorbike was stolen from a private garage at Sharks Pit overnight between Thursday and Friday.

Pete Hicks found his KTM bike abandoned around 200 yards away by the Porthloo boat park.

Sergeant Colin Taylor says this is worse than taking a vehicle without consent from the roadway, because someone committed trespass by entering a building and also a burglary by removing the vehicle from inside.

Colin says he relies on locals to come forward with names or information and says it’s possible people could have been in the area late at night and seen something that could help.

Despite the theft from a secure place, Colin is not necessarily suggesting that islanders need to keep possessions under lock and key.

He says the level of security people use here is entirely up to them, based on their own assessments.
