An appeal for information has been issued after a ten-year-old boy’s scrambler motorbikes were stolen in Banbridge.

Taylor Trimble’s scramblers were stolen alongside his dad’s motorbike from Edenderry Terrace between 24 and 25 May.

The family has posted online seeking anyone with information to get in touch and Taylor’s uncle, Mayor of Armagh City , Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, Councillor Darryn Causby has echoed the plea.

“Taylor is only 10 years old and he is motorbike mad. He’s heartbroken by it all and it is so frustrating that someone would take his bikes,” he said.

“Some people have already been in touch who think they spotted them.”

Police confirmed they were investigating the burglary.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Police are investigating a burglary at a property in the Edenderry Terrace area of Banbridge sometime overnight Tuesday night, 24 May.

“It was reported that sometime between the evening of Tuesday 24 May and the morning of Wednesday 25 May a shed was entered and three off road scrambler type motorbikes were stolen.

“One of the motorbikes was found on the Scarva Road yesterday, Thursday 26 May.

“Police would appeal to anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone with any information about the motorbikes to contact officers in Banbridge on 101.”
