A Honda quad bike is still missing after being stolen at the beginning of the month, reports hexhamcourant.co.uk.
It was one of two 400cc quad bikes that were taken from a farm in West Woodburn on February 1st, yet while one of the vehicles was later found in nearby woodland, the other is still being searched for by police.
Kevin Oates, neighbourhood inspector in the Northumberland area, called for people to be vigilant to the threat of burglars and suggested communities working together can help reduce the effect of this type of crime. Another popular option is to sign up for a stolen vehicle recovery scheme.
Inspector Oates said: "On this occasion the thieves have not yet been caught. However, police in Tynedale have made arrests recently as a direct result of information being passed by Farmwatch members about suspicious people out and about in our rural areas."
Burglars will target all sorts of vehicles, from everyday cars to the quad bikes taken in the West Woodburn case; in one recent crime, a £70,000 rally car was taken from Chepstow Racecourse, reports southwalesargus.co.uk.
Police are appealing for information regarding what happened to the race car, which was identified as a red Citroen C2 with the registration number BL05 CGF. It was reported stolen on Saturday February 9th after being taken the night before.
