TWO motorbikes were stolen from a shed after thieves smashed the door and tore the bike chains apart.

The thieves made off with a green coloured KX 500 motorbike made in 2003, and a second off-road bike made in 1987 which is painted red and white with a blue seat.

The owner of the bikes said they were locked up in a shed in the village near Woodgreen before they were taken on April 18.

The break-in is thought to have happened between 8.30pm and 10.30pm.

The owner of the bikes has appealed for the safe return, and has offered a cash reward in exchange for the bikes back.

Anybody with information should contact the police using the CRN 43190124551.
