Rare Harley Davidson Stolen From Kidderminster - Reward
The owner of a rare Harley Davidson motorbike stolen from Kidderminster has offered a reward.
The £500 reward is for information leading to the recovery of the bike, and the arrest and conviction of the offenders.
The turquoise and cream Harley Davidson, registration number P620 WGH, was stolen from the car park of the Travelodge in Park Lane between 12.45am and 12.55am on Friday 14th September, when it was seen being lifted into a stolen blue Ford Transit panel van and driven off.
The van itself had earlier been stolen from Cobden Street, Kidderminster. It was found abandoned on a track off the Bewdley Bypass soon after, but the Harley Davidson had gone.
PC Dan Southan of West Mercia Police said: "The Harley Davidson is a rare and distinctive colour, so we hope someone may recall seeing it, or know where it is now."
The owners of the bike, Harley Davidson enthusiasts Ray and Julie Pye, from Essex, are devastated. They had just spent ten days touring the country on it and had stopped off in Kidderminster on their way home to visit Severn Valley Railway.
They discovered it had been stolen when they were awoken by police knocking on their hotel room door. They had to make their way home to Essex on trains and by taxis.
Mrs Pye said: "We have had it since it was a year old, and the man we bought it off had had it custom coloured. We have been to a lot of rallies, and we have only ever seen one other like it."
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Southan on 0300 333 3000 quoting incident 4-N-140912 or ring the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
