Joseph Farr, 20, of Corby, has been charged with one count of theft of a motor vehicle.

All of these charges come after incidents in Corby where motorbike sellers, who live in various parts of the UK, have been asked to come to the town to complete the purchase.

But when they arrived they had their bikes stolen and no payment was made.

Campion, Campbell and Farr will appear at Northampton Magistrates’ Court on August 6

Lead investigator, PC Mark Walker, said: “This has been a complex investigation and I would like to thank the victims, who reside in various parts of the UK, for their support and patience.”
