Watch out, bike nappers are about
MOTORCYCLISTS beware: lock up your wheels or they may just be wheeled away by a thief.
Police issued the warning yesterday after two motorbikes were stolen from the same Tinana street within two days.
Sergeant George Pope said both motorbikes had been left unsecured on private property when they were taken.
The first was stolen from underneath a high-set house on Tapscott Street on Sunday night. A witness saw unknown offenders enter the property between 11pm and 11.15pm.
The thieves were seen wheeling the Honda XR6 trailbike on to the road and away into the night. It was predominantly white with red and blue features and had the registration 177FC.
Police believe the same offenders may be responsible for the theft of another motorbike, from the same street, the following day.
The second motorbike stolen was from a home about 100 metres from the first offence location.
A blue and white Yamaha WR450 trailbike was wheeled out of an open carport between 1.30pm and 4.30pm Monday. It had registration 752EP.
Neither of the bikes had been recovered yesterday afternoon.
Police are appealing for anyone with information about the thefts to call Maryborough police station on 4123 8111, or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
