Merseyside Police is investigating after a motorbike was stolen from a property in Southport.
Between 11pm on Tuesday 26 July and 7am on Wednesday 27 July, the bike, a Triumph Bonneville Scrambler in blue with an Arrow exhaust, was taken from a garage at the rear of a property on Marsden Road.
House to house and CCTV enquiries have been carried out and officers in Sefton have released a photograph of the bike in a bid to trace it.
They are also investigating following an attempted burglary at a garage at the rear of a property in Hesketh Road which took place at around 1.25am today.
It is believed that the occupier of the house may have disturbed the offenders who are described as males wearing dark clothing with hats and scarves covering their faces.
Merseyside Police is also reminding owners of motorbikes and scooters to make sure their vehicles are safely secured when not in use and to use heavy duty chains, disc alarms and security markings to act as a deterrent to offenders and to make it easier for them to be located if their bike is stolen.
Anyone with information in relation to either incident is asked to contact Merseyside Police on 101 or the confidential Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
