Motorbike and trailer thief captured on camera passing through south Armagh

Owner asks businesses and home owners with CCTV to check footage

A thief who took a motorcyclist’s prize bike as he returned from the Tandragee 100 has been captured on camera in south Armagh.

And owner Alan Connor has asked other businesses or anyone with CCTV to check their films from last night in the hope of helping to trade the bike.

He had had an enjoyable day at the annual Tandragee 100 Road Race meeting yesterday.

But Mr Connor stopped at the Carrickdale Hotel, between Newry and Dundalk, that evening.

When he emerged, his van was there, but an Ifor Williams 10 x 5 box trailer, which contained his motorcycle, were gone.

Thousands of people have shared online appeals to help find the stolen property.

The motorbile (pictured) had gold wheels at the time of being taken – the blue wheels pictured on it were in the trailer too.

Mr Connor has since learned from images captured that the thief was of large build and wearing a blue T-shirt.

He said: “He was driving a black Nissan Terrano jeep, with false English plates.

“He was tracked passing through Jonesborough at 8.28pm. We have more people further on that will be checking their camera footage today.”

Mr Connor has thanked everyone who has shared appeals to help find the “scumbag”.

But he has urged the public: “If you live anywhere in the Jonesborough area, or further out, and have CCTV on your house or shop that also shows the road, can you help us to track this jeep, or its driver. Let’s make facebook useful for once!”

If you have any information or have seen the bike and can help in anyway, the owner can be contacted on (00353) 870556105.
