AN APPEAL has been launched after three motorbikes were stolen from a shed.

Between 10.30pm and 11pm on Monday (January 28), three people broke into a shed in a garden of a home in Coopers Lane, Bramley, and made off with the three vehicles.

They used tools found in the shed to unbolt locking nuts to a garden gate to get out.

A short time later, the trio were seen pushing the bikes up Coopers Lane towards the Bramley Inn pub.

The bikes were later recovered but the offenders were last seen running away on foot towards Clift Meadow Pavilion.

A police dog was deployed, however, it was unable to track the offenders.

Anyone who saw or heard anything that could assist police with their enquires is asked to call 101, quoting 44190034530.
