THREE motorbikes worth a total of £27,500 have been stolen in two burglaries in Bewdley and Stourport.

The first happened in Wassell Drive in Bewdley between 11.15pm on Monday, January 14 and 8.20am on Tuesday, January 15.

A bolt cutter was used to gain entry to a garden shed and two Harley Davidsons, which had been secured with wheel locks, were stolen.

One was an orange FXSTI Softail Standard, registration GN05 GXC, and was worth £11,000.

The other was a purple FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide, registration number KT51 TJZ, and worth £7,500.

The second burglary happened in Abberley Avenue in Stourport between 10pm yesterday and 5am today, when a £9,000 red Ducati 1098 S, registration BX08 AGO, was stolen from a secure garage.

Three youths were seen outside throwing snowballs at about 11pm and West Mercia Police would like to trace them as they may have information.

The burglaries follow two other incidents, one in Wilden Lane in Stourport and one in Warseley Court Road in Hartlebury , where motorbikes were also stolen earlier in January.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone who knows where the motorcycles are to ring the non-emergency number 101, and ask PC James Robinson for the Wassell Drive offence, quoting reference 28-N-150113, and PC Paul Modley for the Abberley Avenue offence, reference 47-S-210113.

Witnesses can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
