Three unnamed young men have been arrested in connection with a series of moped and motorbike thefts. 

Police say the three young men were arrested in connection to at least ten separate motorbike and moped thefts in Lowestoft, Beccles and Bungay. 

These incidents occurred from April 19 to May 3 when expensive motorbikes and mopeds, including Hondas, Suzukis and Lexmotos, were tampered with, ridden and then dumped.

This comes after seven mopeds were stolen or attempted stolen from Lowestoft last month and two teenagers were also arrested for stealing mopeds

More recently, another moped was also stolen from a car park in Lowestoft and from outside a home at the start of May.
