Hunt for owners of stolen bikes

POLICE want to trace the owners of a quad bike and mountain bike recovered in raids on properties.

Officers executed a warrant in Thrybergh, where three people were arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods.

A 20-year-old woman was later cautioned and two men, aged 23 and 25, were bailed pending further enquiries.

A trial bike and quad bike were seized from an outhouse at the Goosecroft Avenue home.

The trial bike was returned to its rightful owners in Eastwood but the quad has not been reported stolen.

A police spokeswoman said: “It is green and appears to be a 110cc engine. Anyone who thinks it is theirs should call police on 101, quoting reference 211 of January 19.”

Another warrant was carried out in Denman Street, Eastwood, after intelligence suggested there might be stolen property there.

Officers recovered a Saracen Zenith 7005 mountain bike they believe was stolen several months ago.

The spokeswoman said: “A 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft and is currently on police bail.

“Officers would like anyone who thinks that it might be theirs to contact SYP on 101 and quote reference 566 of January 4.”
