Not sure if it's related but on Tuesday about 6 pm two pedal bikes were stolen from Neckinger Estate, the kids were chased round to Spa Road and the bikes recovered, police did catch one or two of them also.

"How do you know it's not his?" was the dispatchers first response to me. Maybe because he's treating it like ****, ramping it over the bumps, and two guys are watching him going around and around in circles? Call it a hunch...
Joyriding itself is against the law be it on their own scooter or a stolen one so yes the police should still be called. wrote:What law is being broken if you are riding your own scooter?
