Stolen Property Recovered


ACT Policing has recovered 21 stolen e-bikes and electric scooters following the search of a home in Ngunnawal yesterday.

In December 2022, an e-bike that had an Apple Air-Tag fixed to it was stolen.

Earlier this month, the Air-Tag transmitted its location to the owner and police sought a search warrant for a home in Ngunnawal.

Gungahlin Station general duties officers executed the search warrant yesterday (Thursday, 28 December 2023) and located the stolen e-bike as well as other items believed to be stolen.

In total six e-bikes, 15 electric scooters, a car trailer and number plates were recovered during the warrant. The estimated value of the recovered goods is more than $30,000. Inquiries in relation to the recovered goods are continuing.

ACT Policing is reminding Canberrans to record details of items such as bikes, scooters and other portable items. Serial numbers and images of the items are useful to provide to police and insurers if an item is stolen.

Bike and scooter owners should also register the details of their item at Bikelinc . This allows the quick return of items if recovered by police. It also makes it difficult for stolen items to be on-sold, with prospective buyers able to check if an item has been reported stolen.

If you believe you are the rightful owner of any of the items recovered (that have not already been reported to police) and can provide proof of ownership, please contact police on 131 444 quoting reference 7631621

Anyone with any information about the theft and sale of goods such as bikes and scooters should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Information can be provided anonymously.
