Operation Yellowfin: Anti-social use of Off-Road Motor bikes
This is an issue which has frequently been raised to Officers whilst out on patrol and via email/social media. We are targeting OP Yellowfin patrols to hotspot locations and will look to seize bikes which are involved in this. We execute warrants after receiving information from the community about where bikes are being stored and who is involved in riding them.
During this month four riders have been stopped and issued a warning under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act 2002, along with another rider who received a warning and reported for other driving offences. If there is a breach of those warning notices within the next 12 months, the bike can be seized.
If you have any information about where the bikes are being stored or who is involved then please do report via 101 or contact your local team in strict confidence. We are grateful for information we receive which allows us to take appropriate action against offenders.
