28 October 2017 – OSET Bikes are appealing for witnesses or information after 45 of its 2017 bikes were stolen yesterday from a lorry park in Leicestershire.
The incident happened between 1800 and 0500 on the night of the 25 October at Markfield Service Station J22 off the M1, while the driver completed an overnight rest break.
The new 2017 bikes were being transported from the docks, having cleared customs, to the manufacturer’s warehouse facilities in the Midlands. From here they were due to be transported across the UK to the dealership network.
The theft was only discovered when the driver returned to his vehicle at 5am on the 26th October 2017 and noticed both seal and container lock had been removed and the door ajar.
Thieves stole only the smaller models in the range – the 12.5 Eco, 12.5R and 16.0R were the models taken.
Anyone with information should contact Leicestershire police on 101, ask for Leicestershire Police and use crime number 1600-0339-8992. Alternatively please firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are offered a suspicious 2017 OSET bike outside of OSET’s official dealer network please check the frame number and report it to the police or OSET as it may be stolen.
