Two motorbikes were stolen over the past week from parking spots outside restaurants.
In the most recent theft, a red Yamaha YBR motorbike – license plate number 165 441 – was taken from outside Casa 43 Mexican Restaurant in Canal Point, George Town, just after 9 p.m. Tuesday. Its owner parked it outside the restaurant and discovered it missing a few minutes later, police said.
On Dec. 8, the owner of a red-and-black Yamaha parked the motorbike behind Craft Restaurant in Marquee Plaza on West Bay Road around 7:45 p.m. The motorbike, with license plate number 165-405, was discovered missing around 10 p.m. That bike had an Automotive Art sticker on the gas tank, and the tip of the left handle bar is missing, police said.
Police are advising motorbike owners to not only lock their motorbikes, but also to secure them to a post or some other stationary object.
