Quad Bike Theft

Alert message sent 29/11/2019 07:13:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland

Police are appealing for information following the theft of a quad bike from the Cairn O Mount area between 2200hrs on 26/11/2019 & 0700hrs on 27/11/2019.

The quad is described as a Camouflage Yamaha Grizzly 700 with an additional seat welded to the rear, deer rack, light bar and gun rack on the front, heated hand grips and additional rear mud flaps.

Anyone with information please contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference CF0302381119.

Quads and All-Terrain Vehicles are a top target for thieves in the UK as they are easier to steal and sell-on than larger farm vehicles. As well as being simple to jump on and drive off when they’re left standing, thieves also take them from workshops and barns.
Consider investing in a bespoke quad security device or a quality padlock and chain, such as those approved by  Secured By Design - a police approved product scheme. Securing to a fixed point on the ground or something that takes time to remove will act as a deterrent.

Never leave your keys in the ignition, even if you only briefly leave your ATV unattended and keep gates to yards closed as open gates can be an invitation to thieves.
