Motorcycle theft increasing

04 Jun 2015

Thefts of motorcycles are on the rise in Docklands according to local police.

The most recent theft occurred sometime between 8.30am on May 15 and 4pm on May 16 after a man left his scooter parked near 850 Collins St.

According to Sen-Sgt Mick Wilmott, when the owner returned on May 16 to retrieve his scooter it was missing.

The motorcycle theft trend has also been observed in East Melbourne and North Melbourne and more than 100 motorcycles have been stolen in the CBD since the start of the year.

Police currently want to speak with two men, who have been seen loading motorcycles into the back of a white van.

Police say most of the thefts have taken place at night and have occurred both from the street and from secure parking.

Police have asked residents to keep an eye out for people loitering or behaving suspiciously in apartment car parks and to pay attention to tailgating.

They also ask people to be aware of suspicious activity, particularly in relation to men driving white vans and to take down registration numbers if you notice suspicious behaviour.

In addition, owners of motorcycles are asked to take care where they park and ensure it’s in a well-lit area.

Residents and workers who observe suspicious behaviour around motorcycles should contact Crimestoppers or call 000.
