Did thieves really film themselves nicking a police bike?


YOU’D think a stolen police vehicle in full yellow and blue livery would be too hot to handle for even the most audacious thieves.

Not, apparently, for London moped thieves.

A video circulating on social media purports to show scooter-riding thieves in the act of stealing a police BMW R1200RT, like one of those pictured above.

It was tweeted by @MotorcycleTheft, an account which regularly shares videos of bike thefts in progress. According to the tweet, it was filmed and originally shared by the culprits.

The exact location is unclear but a reply from a twitter user described as a ‘police biker’ said the BMW was parked and unattended, with the key removed from the ignition, when the moped thieves pushed it away. It was 'recovered a short time later', according to the tweet.

Visordown has approached the Metropolitan Police for a comment.
