Burton Latimer man gutted after BMW motorbike stolen from garage
A Burton Latimer man says he is 'gutted' after thieves stole a motorbike worth around Â£10,000 from his garage.
Steve Bowyer, who lives in Church View, had his 65-plate BMW R9T Sport bike stolen from his home at some point between 8pm on July 15 and 7am on July 17.
He says he is devastated - but he wants to help others with bikes prevent the same from happening to them.
He said: “The lock was on and the alarm was set but they smashed it.
“They must have moved it with limited noise. I’m absolutely gutted.
“I saw an article about a bike theft in this week’s Northants Telegraph and I want to get the word out to stop others being a victim.
“If anyone wants to speak about it they can call me on 07812 790164.”
A police spokesman confirmed they were looking into the incident.
The spokesman said: “If anyone has seen the bike or is offered one like this we would love to hear from them on 101.”
