The ongoing local rash of break-ins, burglary and thefts sadly continues – in the past couple of days a local lad’s motorbike has been stolen from Pelsall and there’s been an attempted garage break-in Bridge Street, Clayhanger – so please be vigilant.
The bike was stolen from the home of 17 year-old Ben Marklew, and was his pride and joy – please keep a look out for this machine and bear in mind there’s a reward for it’s return.
I woke up this morning [Wednesday 16th March 2016] to discover that in the early hours of the morning, my motorbike had been stolen from my property on Victoria Road, Pelsall. It is a Yamaha MT-125, colour is a Matte Grey with black wheels and white reflective rim tape, and the registration number is: DL15 TKY.
I am only a 17 year old lad who has worked very hard to get this bike and it is my pride and joy. So, please can everyone keep a look out for this motorbike.
There is a £500 reward if you have any information leading to the bike’s recovery.
You can contact me on Facebook or on my mobile, which is: 07896 311419.
I’m sure readers will join with me in commiserating with Ben, and as I say, please do look out for his beloved bike. What an awful, awful thing to happen.
Meanwhile, in Bridge Street, Clayhanger last night at around 7:30pm (Tuesday 15th March 2016) a garage window was broken with the clear intent to burgle – but the culprits scarpered when they set off an intruder alarm. Please be vigilant folks, the scumbags are getting bolder.
It would be a good idea to keep your eye out for n’er do wells and other suspicious folk hanging around the fields and open spaces near the village, and indeed anywhere in the local area.
If someone you know has just inexplicably tooled up on a new bike, check it out, please – after all, it might be your stuff they steal next.
Anyone with information is urged to contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Alternatively, mail me at BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com and I’ll pass any information on.
