Heybridge: 'I've been robbed twice' says bike theft victim
12:00pm Wednesday 3rd October 2012 in Local News
A Heybridge man is fuming after police recovered his stolen motorcycle and then had it impounded with a release fee he was unable to afford.
Former Plume School pupil Daniel Lucas of Goldhanger Road now feels as though he has twice become the victim of a crime after he was unable to pay the release fee and his £500 bike was scrapped.
An Essex Police spokesman said: “The owner of the motorcycle was advised of the force’s stolen vehicle recovery policy.
“The fee is fixed by law.”
