Theft of Kawasaki Motor Cycle

A Kawasaki KXF 250 motorcycle off-road motorcycle was stolen from a house in Rosetta Road, Peebles overnight on Sunday 14/02 into Monday 15/02.

The seller had advertised the motorbike on Gumtree and may have inadvertently revealed their address. The bike is described as being green/white in colour with a silver frame, black wheel trims and blue radiator hoses. Anyone who has information regarding this crime or sees this bike offered for sale is urged to contact Police on 101 or via Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.

Police Scotland would like to remind members of the public to take extra care when advertising items for sale on-line using websites such as Gumtree, or through social media. Be aware of, whom you are posting the information to, whom you are identifying yourself to, where you live, where you frequent, vehicles and items of high value property which you own. Keep in mind that private posts can sometimes be accessed or be visible to any person with online access. Criminals may use the information you post online to target individuals or premises.
