Detectives are appealing for information after five Harley Davidson motorcycles were stolen from a property near Bedale.


The bikes, which were stored in an outbuilding at The Old Vicarage in Snape, were taken sometime between Saturday 3 November 2012 and Monday 12 November 2012, while the owner was away.

Two Beta trails bikes were also stolen along with the Harleys. In total, the motorcycles are valued at approximately £50,000.

The bikes stolen included:

  • Bright blue Harley Davidson Evolution 883cc Sportster
  • Black Harley Davidson Evolution 1340cc Sportster
  • Green and silver Harley Davidson Evolution 1340cc Sportster
  • Green Harley Davidson Evolution 1340cc
  • Red Harley Davidson Evolution 1340cc
  • Beta TXT 80cc junior trials motorcycle, with a red and black frame
  • Beta trials motorcycle in red and aluminium

Officers are appealing to anyone with information about the burglary to contact them with information.

Detective Constable Donna Anderson, of Northallerton CID, said: "Whoever is responsible for stealing these motorcycles must have used either a lorry or two large vans to transport them from the scene.

"Therefore, I am appealing to anyone who saw any suspicious vehicles in the area around the time of the burglary to contact the police or Crimestoppers with information."

In a further incident which officers believe may be linked to the burglary in Bedale, two vintage motorbikes were stolen around four miles away from a farm in Thirn, near Ripon.

Sometime between 8pm and 8.30pm on Saturday 17 November 2012, a shed was broken into on the farm's land and offenders took a 1961 Greeves Scottish trials bike and a 1961 BSA C15 trials bike, which are valued at £2,500 each.

Officers with the assistance of a police dog later tracked the motorbikes down in a nearby field and returned them to their owner.

Officers are appealing to anyone with information about the burglary to contact them with information.

Anyone who can help officers with their enquiries into either incident is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 - select option 2 - and ask for Donna Anderson or Northallerton CID.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
