‘Motorcycle Storage’ – what to do with your stolen bike

  • September 16, 2021

The police in the Northern Territory say they’re struggling to find a way to safely dispose of stolen bikes and mopeds after a man allegedly stole a Harley-Davidson bike from a storage room at a motel.

Police say they received a call about a bike being stolen at the Bunnings Motor Lodge on June 4.

They found a motorbike lying in the storage room, but it wasn’t registered.

“The motorbike was stolen from the motor lodge.

The owner of the motorbike, [Sandra] Roper, told police she had a rental of a Harley Davidson motorbike and that she was leaving for Sydney for a weekend,” NT Police said in a statement.

Ms Roper has since pleaded not guilty to a charge of theft over $5000.

She has since been charged with two counts of possession of stolen property.

Detective Inspector Chris Huggins said the motorist, who is also an employee of the motel, would be asked to come forward to help police with their enquiries.

He said the motorcycle could be returned to the owner if she was available.

Anyone who has any information about the theft is asked to contact police.
