Three motorbikes have been stolen within the space of just a few hours around Salisbury.

  1. WOODFORD VALLEY: Between 9.30pm on 16 April and 12.30am on 17 April, a Yamaha WR 125R motorcycle was stolen from the garden of a house in Salterton, Woodford Valley. The bike is blue and white, with grey grips with blue ends, ufo handguards and rock oil stickers
  2. DEVIZES ROAD: Between 11pm on 16 April and 10am on 17 April, a Honda CRF 250 X off road bike was stolen from the back garden of a home in Devizes Road, Salisbury.
  3. ROWBARROW: Between 9pm on 18 April and 7am on 19 April, there was a burglary in The Crescent, Rowbarrow, and an orange KTM Freeride bike was stolen along with the security alarm from the garage.
