Police have put out a warning of thieves on motorbikes operating at this moment in Orpington.
They have been spotted in Tillingbourne Green in St Mary Cray and are believed to be the same males involved in attempting to steal a bike at Orpington Station yesterday.
Bike and moped crime rocketed over the past five years. Police not being to pursue except under stringent conditions quickly got through to criminals.
Since then some modest changes have occurred but police are still heavily restricted despite PR from the Met Police.
There must be highly trained officers or a police helicopter and all too often they aren’t available. Frontline officers still worry about prosecution if anyone becomes injured.
