Thieves steal off road bike

A YELLOW Suzuki motorbike was stolen from a house on Heanor Road after thieves moved a car blocking their way to the garage where it was kept.

The window of a Seat Ibiza parked in front of the garage was smashed and the car rolled back to allow the thieves to get the off road bike out some time between midnight on Thursday July 7 and just after 8am on Friday July 8.

Police received a call at 3.30am from a witness saying they had seen two men take a bike onto a field near Wardlow Road and Oakham Way and jump start it.

One man rode off on the bike and the other followed in a white van.

Anyone with information about the incident can call police on 0345 123 3333.
