Theft of Quad Bikes – Warning
Following a recent increase in the theft of quad bikes Police Scotland are warning owners to
ensure quad bikes are secure when not in use, to look out for any suspicious vehicles and occupants,
note vehicle registration numbers and report details.
Quad bikes are a popular target for criminals. Keys should be removed and the vehicle immobilised
when not in use. They should be kept in a locked garage or shed and should never be left in open view.
Block the machine in with other equipment so that it cannot be pushed away.
If your property is high value fit a tracking device or a data-tracking chip. Keep a record with
photographs and serial numbers where possible. If they are stolen and later recovered it will be much
easier for the property to be identified and returned to you.
If you see anything suspicious report to Police Scotland on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
You can also contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.
