Tackling vehicle crime and youth annoyance in Cefn Glas
Date: Thursday 2nd March
South Wales Police Bridgend Community team officers take part in an operation to target vehicle crime and youth annoyance in Cefn Glas Area.
South Wales Police Bridgend Community Team officers have taken part in a two night operation to tackle vehicle crime and youth annoyance. The operation took place in the Cefn Glas area of Bridgend.
As part of the operation South Wales Police Bridgend Community Team members PC Darren Morris and PC Stuart Morgan, targeted illegal motor vehicles within the residential areas of Cefn Glas.
South Wales Police PC Darren Morris noted "The operation in Cefn Glas directly targeted the illegal riders of mini motorbikes and other motor vehicles, and furthermore represented that such anti social behaviour will not be tolerated".
South Wales Police PC Stuart Morgan noted "It is important that the owners of mini motorbikes clearly understand that when on roads they are subject to the Road Traffic Act, hence the requirement for vehicle insurance, road tax, MOT's, driving license, safety helmet, and number plates."
During the operation South Wales Police confiscated a mini motorbike that was being illegally used.
The practice of both illegal "Off Roading", and illegal road use will not be tolerated by South Wales Police, and officers will continue to target these offenders.
South Wales Police urges community members with any information on the identity of illegal motor vehicle users to contact 01656 655 555, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
Again, South Wales Police would urge the owners of vehicles like mini motorbikes to contact and join specialist clubs. A list of clubs can be obtained from www.acu.org.uk, or www.offroad-motorsport.com, or www.laragb.org.
