Police raid a success

POLICE officers raided a home at Korora early yesterday seizing a motorcycle, which was stolen in Coffs Harbour over the weekend.

A man has been arrested over the theft, while two other people at the address were also issued with fines for carrying weapons.

Police say the KTM-525 dirt bike was recovered at a property on West Korora Road after it was reported stolen from a North Coffs address on Saturday night.

Officers executed a search warrant at 7am yesterday, acting on information from the public.

A teenager was arrested and charged at the address with receiving stolen property.

It’s alleged he was given the stolen motorcycle.

Coffs Clarence Police Supervisor Frank Cook said detectives also want to speak to another man, who could shed light on the theft.

“The 18-year-old who was arrested has since been charged with receiving stolen goods,” Sergeant Cook said.

“Police will allege in court he was given the motorcycle by another man who we are trying to locate and question,” he said.

Meanwhile, a search of a vehicle at the West Korora Road home also uncovered a machete and a pocket knife. Police allege the knives were being unlawfully held by two men, 24, and 18.

They were issued with infringement notices for carrying knives in public.
