Polce patrols responding to an alleged theft in Tonbridge have used police dogs and a drone to track down the suspects.
At around 2.20pm on Wednesday 26th January 2022, Kent Police received a report that two teenagers had attempted to steal a motorbike in Morley Road.
The suspects were challenged by members of the public and left the scene on a moped.
Officers later spotted the teenagers riding through Hadlow and located the bike after it was abandoned in Mosquito Road, near Kings Hill.
Police Dog Chewy started tracking through woodland and fields towards West Malling, while officers deployed a drone to assist in the search.
