Police are appealing for information following the theft of two quad bikes from Thainstone Mart, Inverurie. The first quad was stolen on Saturday 17 October 2020 – a Silver coloured Yamaha 50cc YZF child`s quad with blue Yamaha stickers on the front, back and sides.
A second quad was stolen on Tuesday 20 October 2020 and later recovered – a green coloured Kawasaki 350cc quad.
Crime Reduction Officer PC Mike Urquhart said
I would urge those in our rural communities to always park quad bikes as close to your premises as possible, preferably out of sight from nearby roads and remember to always remove keys when not in use. Consider fitting wheel clamps and/or locking posts or consider an alarm. Mark or customise your property so it is easily identifiable. This can deter thieves and assist recovery if they are stolen. Consider tracking devices for high value vehicles and machinery and keep a record of all vehicles with photographs and serial numbers.
Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting reference CF0236571020 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
