Geraldton residents are being asked to keep an eye out for discarded motorbikes following a spate of recent burglaries around Wonthella.

A premises on Flores Road was broken into at the weekend, with three off-road motorcycles reported as stolen.

Geraldton police station officer-in-charge Sen Sgt Chris Martin said officers had since recovered one of the bikes, but two were still missing.

“If anyone sees off-road bikes that are spray painted or damaged in some other way, please ring police and let us know where they are. I expect they will be out in the bush somewhere,” he said.

“We are seeing this trend of people stealing off-road motorcycles at the moment, and then we are finding them in some of the bushland later.”
