Police appeal for owner after suspected motorbike theft


Police are seeking the owner of a black off-road motorcycle which is thought to have been stolen from West Chiltington.

On Thursday February 11, the small, black, 50cc air cooled off-road bike with no number plate was seen being pushed along a footpath in the village.

Officers have appealed to anyone in the West Chiltington, Storrington and Pulborough areas who have had a small black motorcycle stolen from them in the last few months to get in touch.

Owners have also been urged to check garages or outbuildings where one may have been stored to see if it is missing.

A 19-year-old man from West Chiltington has been arrested on suspicion of obstructing a constable. He has been bailed until March 4 while enquiries continue.

Anyone with information can contact the police via 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101, quoting serial 650 of 11/02.

You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 (www.crimestoppers-org.uk).
