Information Appeal After Quad Bikes Stolen From Nr Ross-on-Wye
Police in Ross-on-Wye are appealing for information about the theft of a number of quad bikes from Llangarron.
A total of eight quad bikes worth more than £30,000 altogether were stolen from a secure compound of a local business.
Thieves broke into the site between 7pm on Tuesday, 11 September and 8am on Wednesday, 12 September.
PC Shirley Peters is investigating the incident. She said: "This is a high value theft which would have required a number of people and a degree of planning in order to take so many quad bikes.
"We believe the bikes were somehow started without their keys before being driven across three fields to a large vehicle, which they were then loaded onto. It is thought that the thieves then used the A4137 to leave the area, but it is not know in which direction.
"I would appeal to anyone who saw any suspicious vehicles or people in the lanes around Llangarron on the night the bikes were stolen to get in touch with the details.
"I would also urge anyone who is offered a quad bike for sale in dubious circumstances, or knows of someone who is selling a large number of them, to let us know."
Anyone with information about this incident can call PC Peters on 0300 333 3000, quoting 124S 120912 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
