Police act swiftly after BMX thefts

A man has been charged following the theft of three bikes from the premises of Ramsey BMX Club, in Mooragh Park on Wednesday.

One of the cycles had been donated to the club by the Dreamcatcher Appeal to help children who don't have a BMX get involved in the sport.

Police arrested two men and a woman on Wednesday evening, after a report of an attempted theft from a car in Andreas village.

Following the arrests, the bikes were recovered on the Bride Coast Road and returned to the club.

The man has been charged with burglary and will appear in court in the near future. All three suspects remain on bail pending the outcome of further enquiries.

Police would like to hear from anyone who saw two men and a woman in the area of the BMX Club hut, riding bicycles on the Coast Road, or in the area of Andreas village where the car was entered.

The numbers to ring are 812234 for Ramsey police station, or 0800 555 111 for the anonymous Crimestoppers line.
