Burglary Witney

Police are appealing for information after offenders stole a motorbike and car from a house in Witney.

Offenders entered the address in Thorney Leys sometime between 10pm last night and 7am today (19/3).

They stole the keys that were downstairs and took a black Mini Cooper 56 plate and a red motorbike.

The bike is believed to be very unusual it is a 900ss Ducatti with the index P867 MRJ. It was locked up in the back garden. They also stole a black and silver 'Roof' crash helmet.

PC Rob Stubley, investigating the incident, said: "The bike is rare so I am appealing to anyone who may have seen or does come across it to contact me as soon as possible."

Crime Reduction Adviser, Bill Butcher, said: "Please don't make it easy for burglars to enter your home. Always make sure your keys are somewhere safe and out of sight from prying eyes. My advice to residents is to take your keys upstairs with you when you go to bed.

"Also try not to leave car keys near to front doors where they can be 'fished' or 'hooked' out through the letter box."

PC Stubley can be contacted via the Police Enquiry Centre on 0845 8 505 505.

Alternatively if you don't want to speak to police, call the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
