Two teens charged after motorcycles recovered in the North-east

Two teenage boys have been charged with conspiracy to steal motorcycles after being arrested during dawn raids in Newcastle and Gateshead. Ten people – eight men and two women – were originally arrested.

The police team seized a haul of property – including motorcycles, quad bikes and parts – in the combined swoop on addresses in the North-East. The team built up a detailed picture of the suspects by gathering intelligence and carrying out covert surveillance before executing the raids early on Tuesday 1 October.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Knox said: “We would ask bike owners to ensure their vehicle is secure. Even a simple disc lock can deter them.

“If you know anyone who has stolen a motorcycle or is riding in an anti-social manner then we need you to do the right thing and inform the police.”
