Motorcycles were stolen from several addresses in Weymouth

Three boys have been arrested in Weymouth after a spate of motorcycle thefts - with Dorset Police appealing for witnesses.

Police received several reports of mopeds and light motorcycles being stolen in the early hours of Wednesday November 7 from different locations including Norfolk Road, Regency Drive, Woolcombe Road, Rylands Road and the High Street in Wyke Regis.

A 17-year-old boy of no fixed abode, and two Weymouth boys aged 13 and 15 have been arrested and are helping police with their investigation.

Police Inspector Les Fry of Weymouth Police said: "I believe that all these reports are connected and it may be that the same people are responsible for these incidents.

"The loss of these vehicles has had a devastating effect on the victims, most being young, causing massive inconvenience and expense.

"It appears that at least thee or four boys were acting suspiciously in the area and I am keen to speak to anyone who might have seen something.

"I am determined to find out exactly what happened and I am appealing for anyone with information to contact police immediately. Any calls will be dealt with in the strictest confidence."

Anyone with information should contact Dorset Police on 101 quoting incident number 7:70.
