Two arrests after stolen quad bike tracked to Kildwick

A stolen quad bike and suspected stolen Volkswagen Golf have been recovered and two suspects, including a 16-year-old boy, have been arrested.

The arrests follow the theft of the quad bike from the Long Preston area, reported at 1.45am in the early hours of Tuesday (6th December).

Thanks to a tracker fitted to the quad bike, officers from North Yorkshire Police were able to quickly locate and intercept it near Kildwick. After the vehicle came to a stop, the rider, a 20-year-old man from Leeds was arrested following a short foot chase.

The quad bike was in convoy with a Volkswagen Golf suspected as being stolen from the Hellifield area, and the driver, a 16-year-old boy from Bradford, was arrested on suspicion of theft.
