An appeal for information has been issued by police after two motorbikes were stolen from separate properties in Ramsgate.

At around 9.20am on Monday, November 25 a motorbike was stolen from a car park in College Road. The bike was described as a blue Yamaha YZF-R125 (crime reference number 46/227643/19).

On Tuesday 26 November between 1pm and 1.45pm, a motorcycle was  stolen from a property in Station Approach Road. The motorcycle, described as an orange KTM Duke bike, was recovered nearby the following day (crime reference number 46/228083/19).

Officers are working to establish whether the two thefts are linked and are appealing for witnesses to call Kent Police on 01843 222 289 quoting either of the crime reference numbers above.

Thanet Inspector Julien Lawton  said: There are some simple steps that motorcycle owners can take to reduce the chances of their vehicles being stolen. For example use a disc lock to secure the front brake disc, and if you can’t park the bike in a garage, find somewhere under lighting where it is overlooked.”

Bike Security Advice

  • keep your bike covered to make it less accessible to thieves.
  • Property-mark parts of the bike so it is easier to reunite you with them if stolen, and it stops thieves selling them on.
  • Secure your bike to a ground anchor or a permanent structure.
