A quad which had been reported stolen has been recovered from a patch of undergrowth by police in Co. Antrim.

Announcing the find, local members of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) in Antrim revealed the discovery yesterday, Wednesday, July 3.

In a brief statement, the PSNI said: "With the assistance of the PSNI Air Support Unit we were able to locate and recover this quad bike that was stolen in the course of a burglary on Monday night.

This shows the lengths that criminals will go to in order to hide the proceeds of their crime.

"But rest assured that we and our partner agencies will leave no stone unturned, or bush shaken, to find and recover stolen property.

"Now it's off for a forensic examination to identify the burglars," the statement concluded.
