Hertsmere Police have recovered a nuisance quad bike whilst out on proactive patrol in Bushey.
PCSO Carole Bull and PCSO Esther Ainsley, from the Bushey and Radlett Safer Neighbourhood Team, came across a male riding a quad bike during patrols in Harcourt Road on May 6.
The bike had no registration plate and made off from the officers.
The two PCSOs subsequently tracked the vehicle down in Moat Close where they found the male riding around the grassy area of some flats.
Cornered into the cul-de-sac, there was nowhere else for the male to go and he discarded the bike around the back of the flats before jumping over the fence.
The bike has now been seized and enquiries continue to trace the rider.
PCSO Carole Bull said: “Over the last week, we’ve had numerous reports from residents about a nuisance quad bike being ridden along the footpaths and in the parks in Bushey, and so I hope that this news is reassuring to the community.
“The illegal use of quad bikes poses a real danger and so I would urge anyone with information about the rider of the quad bike to get in touch.”
