Stolen from Deeside Activity Park: Two Honda 900 quad bikes

Deeside Activity Park are offering a £1000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the thieves who stole two of their quad bikes.

The Honda 900s, each costing around £4000, were taken from the activity park’s pavilion shed between two and four-thirty pm yesterday afternoon.

Two males and a blonde-headed female, with a white van and two fighting dogs, thought to be pitbulls, were seen by a member of staff shortly before the theft took place.

Cilla Wood, Deeside Activity Park’s Sales and Marketing Manager, said: “We’re disappointed, we’re shocked, and we’re disgusted at this.

“It’s not a good feeling to come in to work and think, ‘I better make sure my car’s locked up and make sure everything’s out of sight.’”

The Park has over 50 quad bikes, so the theft won’t affect the day-to-day running of the park, but Ms Wood is concerned about the effect the theft might have on their insurance.

She said: “If we lose these quads and we have to make a claim, our insurance goes up.

“Even if we get the bikes back, we don’t know what state they’re going to be in, and we might have to claim for repairs, and that’ll put our insurance up too.”

The Park shared a picture taken in Northfield on its Facebook page of a quad bike being ridden that was virtually identical to the two stolen.

Police Scotland were called at five pm yesterday, and are now investigating the theft and appealing for anyone with information to call 101.
