Paint job was a giveaway

Police have arrested a Murray Bridge man for allegedly riding a stolen motorbike.

A patrol allegedly spotted the 22-year-old riding the Honda dirt bike, which did not have numberplates attached, on Hawke Road around 11.20am last Monday.

They followed him to a block of units.

According to police, a licence check revealed he had been disqualified from driving, and a check on the bike showed it had been stolen in Adelaide on April 26.

The man was charged with unlawful possession and illegal use of the motorbike, driving while disqualified and failing to display numberplates.

Anyone with more information about the theft should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.crimestopperssa.com.au, anonymously if necessary.
