Burglary attempt at Allan Jefferies showroom, Shipley

TWO burglary attempts have taken place at popular showrooms in the Bradford district.

Four men in balaclavas attempted to steal a motorbike from Allan Jefferies and Honda in Otley Road, Baildon, Shipley.

A viewer said: “I was petrified.

“When the sales team came out, they were threatening them with a large metal object.”

The group was trying to steal a motorcycle outside the showroom, but since there was no key, they were unsuccessful.

Another onlooker said: “They got away with one of our bikes but one of our guys chased them and got it.

“They were threatening members of the public who tried to intervene with large metal bars.”

A West Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: ‘Police were called at 1.16pm today to reports that a small group of men attempted to steal a motorbike from a dealership in Berry Drive, Baildon .

“The men were unsuccessful and left the scene on two mopeds, heading towards Shipley.

“Initial inquiries are underway by Bradford District Police.”

Allan Jefferies has been contacted for further details.
