Kāpiti cops and bike owner thank publicBy Alan Tristram
Kāpiti police and the owner of a stolen BMW racing motorcycle have thanked the public for their help in recovering the bike and making two arrests.
The BMW bike, valued at $45,000, was stolen from a Waikanae property in a burglary on March 1.
Detective Constable Douglas Nuku says that, as a result of information received from a person who was arrested on Saturday 23rd March, Kāpiti Police, helped by Levin Detectives, executed a Search on March 25 at a Foxton address and recovered the stolen BMW.
Owner Ross Bloodworth, of 11 Greenaway Road, Waikanae, says he is extremely happy now his bike has been returned as it was uninsured.
D/C Nuku says: “Both Ross and myself would like to thank you all for your help in this matter.
“We received numerous calls and Facebook messages relating to sightings of the stolen motorbike from the public which led to numerous enquiries.
“Levin resident Bonnie Wilson (23) has already entered a guilty plea for the burglary and has been remanded on bail.
Joshua CROTHERS (23) also arrested for the burglary is still in custody at Manawatu Prison.”
Stolen Harley Davidson
But there is still no news of a valuable Harley Davidson motorbike, stolen the same weekend as the BMW theft.
It was taken from the car park of the Jolly Miller pub in Paraparaumu while the owner was inside.
