Three motorcycles have been stolen by thieves in Louth since Saturday, police have confirmed.

Since Saturday, January 6, motorcycles have been taken from properties in Newmarket, Badminton Way and Tudor Drive.

During the early hours of January 6, an orange and grey Baotian BT125 was taken from outside a property in Newmarket and, during the same night, a Derbi GPR50 was stolen from Tudor Drive.

And on Tuesday evening a blue Mikilon 125 was removed from the garden of a house in Badminton Way.

The motorcycles were secured with chains and padlocks, it would appear that the motorcycle complete with chain and padlock have been removed from each location.

PC Rachel Dobson said: “Although at least one of the scooters was secured with a handle bar lock, it appears the offenders are simply lifting the bikes and taking them away.

“The best advice to owners is for them to chain their vehicles to something substantial or, better still, lock the bike away in a secure garage or shed.”

Anyone with information should call Lincolnshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 84 of January 6.
