Police are appealing for information following the theft of a green Yamaha Grizzly 450cc Quad bike from a farm near Kinellar, Blackburn.

The quad bike is believed to have been stolen sometime between December 30 and January 12.

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting reference PS-20220113-1771 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Crime Reduction Officer PC Mike Urquhart said 'I would urge those in our rural communities to always park quad bikes as close to your premises as possible, preferably out of sight from nearby roads.

"Always remove keys when not in use.

"Quads and ATVs should be secured inside buildings with good quality padlocks and chains.

"Ground anchors or wheel clamps combined with an alarm are an excellent deterrent.

"Mark or customise your property so it is easily identifiable.

"This can deter thieves and also assist with recovery if stolen.

Also consider tracking devices for high value vehicles and machinery and keep a record of all vehicles with photographs and serial numbers."
