Off Road Motorcycles - Across the ward
Over recent months we have visited thousands of households across North Lincolnshire and we understand that the antisocial use of off road motorcycles is causing concern in your community. The policing team have been working really hard to respond to local concerns in respect of this issue and while good progress was made around the ward area we recognise that there is still more to do.
Over recent weeks and months we will continue to prioritise our activity around this issue, included a number of tactics as part of Operation Yellowfin.
We continue to undertake Op Yellowfin 'days of action' which is seeing more and more nuisance motorbikes being stopped and seized. We are absolutely committed to continuing in this approach while this remains a priority issue. You can see some of our recent seizures by scrolling through the Twitter and Facebook feeds below.
We want to be clear- we will not be tolerating the criminal use of motorcycles in this way and we will use all powers at our disposal to recover bikes being use
June 2020 updates:
- There have been a number of motorcycles stolen from the ward area recently, please can you ensure that if you own a motorcycle that you leave it locked and secure in order to try and reduce the chances of your motorcycle being stolen.
- We seized an off-road motorcycle from a property on WARWICK ROAD that had been causing issues across the Scunthorpe area.
- As the weather improves we expect the calls about motorcycles to increase. I would like the community to let us know where the motorcycles are being stored. You can remain anonymous and i can assure you that we will act upon the information you provide. We will also work with landlords who will take tenancy action against tenants who are storing the off-road motorcycles that cause the community issues.
Again, I would encourage anyone with information to make contact on either 101 or alternatively, anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
