Stupid thieves nick Deliveroo bike that leads police to weapons stash

A Deliveroo bike was stolen and its tracker led the police to the bike, the thieves and a haul of weapons and drugs!


POLICE made two arrests and seized weapons, drugs, and a stolen motorcycle after the thieves stole a Deliveroo bike that was fitted with a tracking system.

The bike was pinched from outside a Nando’s restaurant, presumably while the owner was collecting some food. Little did the thieves know that the machine was fitted with a tracking device that officers used to pinpoint the machine.

And the police didn't have to look far for the machine, as it had only traveled around three miles, and was found in an alleyway in the Wirral. The officers were led to an address where two men were arrested. A search of the area revealed a hammer under the seat of the stolen bike and a bag full of suspected ecstasy tablets hidden inside a barbecue.

A statement from the police reads:

“Two men have been arrested for possession of an offensive weapon and theft after they reportedly stole a motorcycle from outside Nando’s in Queens Square, Liverpool.

"The Honda motorbike was stolen at around 7:30pm yesterday evening (24 th November) whilst the owner was inside the restaurant.

“Luckily, the bike was fitted with a tracker and so officers were able to follow its journey to a property on Sycamore Road, Wirral…

Two men aged 17 and 22 were detained at the property and arrested on suspicion of theft. A hammer was also found underneath the motorbike seat and so the pair were further arrested for possession of an offensive weapon.

"A further search of the property recovered a large amount of suspected ecstasy tablets concealed inside the BBQ."
