Monkey rider grounded


A MONKEY bike rider hooning around Tonkin Avenue, Safety Beach last week had his bike impounded with a release fee of $1250.

Rosebud police say support from the community with information led them to the culprit who is expected to be charged with unlicensed riding, riding an unregistered vehicle and failing to wear a helmet. He will appear before a children’s court at a later date.

Police describe the bikes as dangerous and their use as putting people at risk.

Local intelligence and co-operation from the community is essential to apprehending riders, they say.

Anyone seeing a rider is urged to call 000 or contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or visit with information about who owns these bikes and where they are coming from. All matters concerning Crime Stoppers remain confidential.
