Man Charged, Motorbike Confiscated In Cheltenham

A man has been charged and has had his motorbike confiscated after it was found to have no insurance.

Police were patrolling areas in Whaddon in Cheltenham at around 5pm on Sunday 18 February after reports of anti-social behaviour involving motorbikes.

A 22-year-old man from Cheltenham was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst disqualified; his motorbike was confiscated, as he had no insurance.

The 22-year-old has been charged with driving whilst disqualified and is due before Cheltenham Magistrates on 26 February 2007.

Whaddon's Inspector Stephen Norris said; "We take all reports of anti-social behaviour very seriously and we will act. Let this be a warning to the minority who are intent on causing trouble.

We hope this shows everyone else that by working together we can resolve the issues that cause anti-social behaviour and create a safer community for everyone. Failure to have your vehicle insured, will risk having it confiscated and potentially crushed."

If you have any information or concerns about anti-social behaviour you can contact police on 0845 090 1234, talk to or email your Safer Community Team or you can remain anonymous and call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
