Appeal after rare motorcycle is stolen during burglary in Halsall
POLICE are appealing for information after a rare vintage motorcycle was stolen alongside a large amount of tools from a farm in Halsall.
The burglary has taken place some time between 12pm on Sunday 8th September and 7.40am the following morning, Monday 9th September at a farm on New Cut Lane.
The offenders have approached the farm on the Merseyside border and made to a large freestanding workshop where they have forced entry and escaped with a number of tools and high value grinders.
The offenders have then forced entry to a further two workshops and stole the rare motorcycle before using cutting equipment to cut 6ft of yellow hosepipe from within the yard and using it to steal a quantity of kerosene from a tanker.
PC Sarah Parker said: “The stolen satin red vintage corgi motorcycle is about 70 years old and is a rare collector’s item and as such is not registered for road use. It is only around two foot in height and is very distinctive with a black chassis and painted number plate.
“We believe this vehicle was deliberately targeted and would urge anybody that has been offered it for sale or knows of its current whereabouts to contact police.”
Anybody with any information about this burglary can contact police on 101, quoting log reference number 0217 of September 9, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
