Quad bike thieves thwarted by tracker

Thieves who stole a quad bike abandoned the vehicle after failing to remove its tracker, police say.

The burglary occurred on Tuesday night in Angram Lane, in Angram, Swaledale.

Police say a dark green 500cc Suzuki quad was stolen.

However, the quad was later discovered only half a mile from the attacked property after thieves had tried but failed to remove its tracker.

Police are appealing for any information on the incident.

A spokesperson said: “Did you or anyone who you live with, hear or see anything around the above time and date?

“Do you have any CCTV coverage capturing the burglary, or anything happening on the street before or after?

“Do you have a vehicle with a dash-cam parked in the area?”
