Stolen BMWs

A registered NHS first responder has had his two motorcycles stolen leaving him incapable of helping vulnerable during COVID-19

The bikes were taken from Hob Lane, Burton Green, a small village just outside Kenilworth near Coventry on April 29th at about 4:30am.

The bikes were a BMW MSport coloured S1000RR sports bike and BMW R1250 GS in the distinctive HP colour scheme.

Taking to social media, the owner of the bikes' son posted the picture of the bike you see here plus a message asking for any further information.

He said:

“Two motorbikes stolen from my dad (house garage) about 20 minutes ago, 2 x BMW motorbikes.. (Todays his birthday) lads in a van, share and help find the scum..

Dad is a registered responder to help with CONVID 19, using the motorbike.”

The post has since been shared 21k times.

He has also managed to source some CCTV footage (video below) of the alleged thieves showing them leaving the scene of the theft in a car with a large van – supposedly with the bikes inside – following on behind.

The owner of the bikes uses them in his role as a registered responder undertaking tasks such as picking up prescriptions for vulnerable people who can’t leave the house.

Warwickshire Police have issued a statement, it says:

“Police were made aware of a theft on Hob Lane in Burton Green on Wednesday, April 29.

“Enquiries are ongoing and officers are asking anyone who was in the area or saw any suspicious activity to get in touch.
