Recent motorcycle thefts in Sandhurst

Alert message sent 06/06/2019 13:29:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


Overnight between Wednesday 5 June and Thursday 6 June, two motorcycles were stolen from driveways in Sandhurst.
At sometime after 8.00pm a grey Kawasaki Ninja 650  was taken without keys from the drive in front of a house in Ravenswood Avenue.
Then between 1.00am and 4.30am a silver & black Honda VFR800 was taken without keys from a driveway in front of a house in Cambridge Road.
If you believe you saw or heard anything related to either theft, or have CCTV that will assist the investigations into the thefts you are asked to contact Thames Valley Police on 101, or should you not want to speak to a police officer or rwant to remain anonymous to contact the independent charity “Crimestoppers” on 0800 555 111.
 
If  you are a motorcycle owner it is worth reviewing your security.   
  • As a motorcycle left unattended can be simply wheeled away, or pushed onto a trailer. Consider using some form of secondary lock such as a heavy guage padlock and chain or brake disc lock, whenever and wherever you park.
  • Fit a ground anchor point at your home address that you can shackle your bike to, and consider ensuring your bike is alarmed, and your driveway has adequate lighting , and better still installing CCTV to cover its parking spot.
  • As motorcyles only have rear index plates, ANPR can not be relied on to identify where the bike has travelled, so fitting you bike with a GPS tracker  greatly improves the opportunities to locate it.
