Police have recovered two suspected stolen motorcycles after a chase in the West End.

A police spokesman said that at around 12.45pm last Wednesday, officers on Long Bay Lane in Sandys saw two men with dark coloured visors riding separate motorcycles.

“The officers’ attention was drawn to one of the motorcycles, which had no licence plate,” the spokesman said.

“Both riders were stopped by police and as they were being spoken to, abruptly rode off together on one of the motorcycles, abandoning the other.

“The two men were pursued, but eventually made good their escape in the Daniel’s Head Park, Sandys area. The suspected stolen motorcycle they abandoned on Long Bay Lane was recovered.

“The other suspected stolen motorcycle, used to flee from police, was later recovered in the School Crescent, Sandys area.”

Police urged anyone with relevant information about the incident to call police at 211 or email 211@bps.bm.

The spokesman also encouraged motorists who encounter suspicious activity, including motorcycles being ridden with missing or covered licence plates, to contact police at the earliest opportunity.
