A racing bike, chainsaw and a seven-year-old's motocross bike were stolen in a village theft that may be related to a police pursuit.
The Rudland family had the items stolen from their home on Chapel Road in Carleton Rode, near Attleborough, on Friday morning.
Rianna Rudland said her seven-year-old son Daniel is “heartbroken” by the theft of the tenten 90 motocross bike. Her partner’s racing bike model is a KTM Exc400.
South Norfolk police inspector Jason Selvarajah said: “We have increased patrols locally. A short time later a vehicle was involved in a pursuit involving a high powered vehicle near Thetford.”
Mr Selvarajah added that the investigation is still ongoing. On Friday he posted on Twitter: “Please remain vigilant, safeguard your belongings by ensuring they are secured and report suspicious activity.”
The incident was initially attended by Breckland police.
