The third man is also described as 5ft 8in to 5ft 10in, slim build, in his late teens/early twenties. He was wearing a dark crash helmet with a white shirt and dark trousers, and he was riding a green quad bike. All three men wore dark coloured gloves.

  • While not condoning theft at all, I do wonder why some people apparently continue to leave expensive valuables on display in parked cars. In this case I'm also curious how the crime could be timed so exactly and how the three men seen in the area were all on quad bikes and wearing crash helmets yet their heights and ages could be judged so well?
