POLICE are investigating after two quad bikes were stolen from a farm at West Woodburn.
The 400cc red Honda quad bikes were stolen from a shed at Tenter House between 9pm on Friday, February 1 and 8.15am the following day.
One of the bikes was later recovered from woodland several miles away from the farm.
Neighbourhood Inspector Kevin Oates said: “On this occasion the thieves have not yet been caught. However, police in Tynedale have made arrests recently as a direct result of information being passed by Farmwatch members about suspicious people out and about in our rural areas.
“Please be vigilant at all times and report any vehicle of anyone who is acting suspiciously or you are not sure about.
“Together we can make it harder for those who commit crime in our rural communities.”
Police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone who knows of the whereabouts of the second stolen quad bike to contact them on 101 ext 69191.

A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
