Information sought following County Down quad bike theft

The thief was captured on CCTV

A County Down Junior Quad club are this week appealing for information following the theft of a quad bike. The blue and white Honda TRX 450 bike was stolen from Tinkerhill, where Emma McQuaid (22), the owner of the bike, was competing in a practice day event.

CCTV images have captured the thief as he also attempted to make off with a van belonging to Ms McQuaid, however a locked gate at the back of the circuit prevented him from doing so. The man ditched the van and made off with the quad bike. Police are investigating the incident.

Sonya McQuaid, mother of Emma, spoke to Newry Times about her daughter’s devastation, “Emma is totally devastated to say the least. All her money, her birthday and Christmas presents were on that bike and everyone knows that her bikes are always immaculately turned out with that added bling.”

She continued, “All I can say is Emma has offered a £1000 reward for information leading to its whereabouts. This will be a major set back as she was planning on racing in Belgium in July and in the UK as well as at home.”

Anyone who has any information on the incident can contact: or contact the police on 0845 600 8000. If you prefer to provide information without giving your details you can contact the independent Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
