Bikers are “putting out a welcome mat” to thieves by posting personal details on classified websites, say police.
Tayside Police said intelligence showed thieves were accessing sites to obtain address details of sellers and using them to steal bikes. They urged sellers to consult the sites themselves for tips on avoiding risks.
Crime prevention officer for Dundee Pc Colin Brough said: ''We have clear indications that motorbike thieves are looking at classified ad sites to target bikes to steal.”
"Some people put too much information, including photos of the bike that also show the shed or garage door behind and whether there is much in the way of security. And some quite literally put out the welcome mat by including a mapping system that provides directions straight to the door of the seller."
