Motorbike thefts on the up in Lincolnshire

POLICE have warned motorbike owners to be on the look out for thieves.

The warning comes after an increase in motorbike thefts across Lincolnshire.

Community safety officer Gill Finn said: “Thefts are taking place between the hours of 6.30pm and 9.30am over the full seven-day period.

“Offenders are gaining access to garages and private driveways and it is suggested that they are armed with bolt cutters or rolling bikes directly onto a van or low loader.

“Please ensure that your motorcycle is stored with increased security and out of view if possible.”
