Four more youths have been arrested in north Hull as part of our continued efforts to stamp out motorbike enabled crime across northern Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.

Sergeant Derek Hussain, who has been leading on Operation Yellowfin, said: “The work we’re doing through Operation Yellowfin is making a real impact – not only in terms of arresting those we believe are linked to motorbike-enabled crime but also demonstrating that it’s not something you can get away with in our area.

“As well as the four we arrested yesterday, we also seized a motorbike and dealt with another 14-year-old boy who had breached his curfew – and we’re not going to stop there.

“We have patrols looking out for bikes we suspect have been stolen and for people who are riding dangerously or illegally.

“Your support and information is also vital and we have officers out there constantly speaking to people about their concerns and putting together the information we need to carry out successful warrants.”

Among the incidents we dealt with yesterday are:

We arrested a 15-year-old boy in connection with the theft of a delivery driver’s black Taiwan Goldenbee motorbike at around 4.20pm on May 5.

The victim had been using a cashpoint at a supermarket in Beverley Road, when two people wearing bright coloured crash helmets and high vis vests stole his bike.

The 15-year-old arrested in connection with the incident has since been released pending further enquiries and we’d like to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard anything that could assist our investigation.

Three youths arrested in connection with the suspected theft of a motor vehicle in north Hull yesterday have been released without charge.
