Crooks begin spate of burglaries on stolen bike

Police forces in Hampshire are to begin forensic testing on a stolen motorbike before returning it to its rightful owner, dailyecho.co.uk reports.

A group of thieves from Southampton stole a motorbike then used it to carry out several other burglaries in and around the city.

These included a burglary in East Wellow where the homeowner returned to find two intruders wearing crash helmets inside their property. The two then made off on the bike with goods taken from the property. Another burglary in Ampfield is also thought to be attributable to the same individuals, localuknews.co.uk claims.

After carrying out a number of robberies, the crooks then dumped the bike at nearby Lordshill. After being found by the police, the vehicle then went in for forensic testing to try and establish who the thieves were, before it is returned to the owner.

Whilst the spate of burglaries now appears to have come to an end, police may have been able to trace the crooks' path much quicker and easier had the bike been fitted with motorcycle security features such as a tracking device.

Had this happened, they may have been found and stopped before having the chance to undertake further robberies.
