Merseyside Police is appealing for information following a burglary Formby last week during which three bikes were stolen from a garden storage building.
It is thought that the break in took place some time between 2pm Thursday January 17 and 10.30am on Sunday, February 2 when the three bikes were stolen.
The first bike is a Montesa 250cc Dougie Lampkin replica trials bike. It is red and silver, with red powder coated handle bars. There is a scratch on the petrol tank going from left to right andd the rear mudguard has two drill holes in it, where the grab handle was attached.
The second bike is an Onza stunt bicycle, which is white and blue in colour and does not have a seat fitted so that the rider can practice stunts.
The third bike is a Gas Gas 125cc Raga trials bike in red, silver and black.
Inspector Gary Fairbrother said: “These bikes are distinctive and have a combined value of over £5,000. They may be being used in the same areas visited by off road motorcyclists and I would ask people to keep their eyes open for them so that we can return them to their rightful owner.
“We are keen to talk to anyone who may have seen these bikes out and about, been offered them for sale or has any information at all to contact the local police.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact 0151 777 3441 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
