Bike theft racket busted in Odisha, 25 motorcycles seized

Kendrapara: The Odisha Police on Friday claimed to have busted a motorcycle theft racket with the arrest of five persons in Kendrapara district.

Acting on a tip-off, the police personnel conducted search operations in Kendrapara town and seized 25 two-wheelers from their possession, a senior officer said.

“The stolen motorcycles were sold to agents at a cheaper price. An investigation has been initiated,” he said.

The modus operandi of the gang was to locate a motorcycle that had been parked outside hospitals or in bus stands. They would break the lock of a motorbike and run away with it from the spot, the police officer said.
