Teen Arrested on Suspicion of Motorcycle Theft

Police officers were on mobile patrol on South Road in Paget around 1:45 a.m. on Friday, September 22nd, 2023, when they observed a male riding a motorcycle heading west, near Paraquet Restaurant, using his foot to push another bike, which was believed to have been stolen, also ridden by a male.

Upon seeing the officers, the rider of the suspected stolen bike jumped off and got on the back of the the other bike.

The men failed to stop when called on to do so by the officers and sped off before they were seen again near Tribe Road No. 5.
