Motorcycle Theft - Keep yours safe

Alert message sent 21/12/2020 17:10:00

Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police


Dear Surrey Heath members.

I spotted an Alert message from our colleagues across the border in Hampshire regards a series of thefts of motorcycles which appears to be occurring in the Hook area (so not that far away).

In the last week or so Hampshire Police received two reports where offender/s had stolen unattended and secured motorcycles from the communal car park of a residential building. 

They felt it would be an opportune time to provide any motorcycle/moped owner's with the following advice:
  • Where possible, please keep your motorcycle in a secure building. Ensure the doors and windows to this building are locked.
  • Please consider the use of a heavy duty chain lock or similar. Alarmed chains are also available.
  • Consider the use of a tracker. This will provide police with an active line of enquiry should you fall victim to this crime.
  • Use other vehicles to block in the motorcycle if it has to be stored outside.
  • Consider the use of CCTV overlooking where the motorcycle is stored. Advertise this CCTV with signage.
  • Keep a photo record of the motorcycle (especially if it has specific or unusual paintwork or markings) as this may help it be spotted later.

As always if you believe you have any information of interest to the police then please call 101 or alternatively, you can use the online reporting system
https://www.surrey.police.uk/ro/report/ocr/af/how-to-report-a-crime/

You can also give information, 100% anonymously, to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111; or through their anonymous online form: https://crimestoppers-uk.org/
