THE owner of a motocross bike which was stolen from a home in Tamworth is making a plea to the public for information.
The Honda CRF250 which is mainly red in colour was stolen from INSIDE a home in the Birds Bush Road area of Belgrave, either late last night or this morning, Monday 19 February.
The thieves smashed a lock off the door and removed a window of a conservatory at the rear of the family home to gain access to the bike as the owners and their young daughter lay asleep upstairs.
The bike has red and white new hand grips and an orange break lever amongst the distinctive parts. It also has gold wheels as well as polished up engine parts and frame.
Nathan Jackson, aged 26, told Tamworth Informed how he has spent a lot of money to get the bike looking as it does now, with a new engine rebuild and parts. He said that the bike is worth around £3,000.
He said: “I use the bike as a hobby at the weekend, I have spent a hell of a lot of money to get it looking as it does now.”
Anyone with information in relation to the burglary or the whereabouts of the bike can call Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting crime number FZ/13106/18.
