Crime Reduction Officer PC Heather Nelson said:
I would urge those in our rural communities to always park quad bikes as close to your premises as possible, preferably out of sight from nearby roads. Remember to always remove keys when not in use.
"Quads and ATVs should be secured inside buildings with good quality padlocks and chains. Ground anchors or wheel clamps combined with an alarm are an excellent deterrent.
"Mark or customise your property so it is easily identifiable. This can deter thieves and also assist with recovery if stolen.
"Also consider tracking devices for high value vehicles and machinery and keep a record of all vehicles with photographs and serial numbers."
