POLICE are appealing for information relating to the theft of two Harley-Davidsons which were taken from the Highfield Hotel near Rainton. The theft took place at around 5.18 am on Friday, June 7th. The police later received a report that five males had stolen the bikes which belonged to guests who were staying at the Highfield hotel.
The story which has been shared widely on social media has attracted attention for the sheer brazen nature in which the bikes were taken (the Hells Angels are known for never contacting the police about such matters and prefer to employ their own kind of justice) as it would’ve been easily noticed that the bikes belonged to the Hells Angels, as both bikes wore the famous Death Head motif that is synonymous with the group.
Stuart Hack shared a post in the UK Motorcycle Theft Protest group on Facebook purporting to be from one of the group. It read:
