Police in Fife have arrested a teenager as part of an ongoing effort to target the illegal use of quad bikes and motorcycles in the Levenmouth area.

Under Operation Reflector, officers arrested and charged an 18-year-old male for driving an off-road motorbike in Laburnum Road, Methil, on Monday, November 2, at around 3pm.

He has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal for disqualified driving, no insurance and for not wearing a helmet.

Sergeant Robert Gassner said: “Operation Reflector continues to address the problem and detect people who drive off-road motorcycles illegally.

“We will continue to resource this initiative and we have both uniform and plain-clothes officers in areas to detect offenders.

“People engaged in this type of activity are a danger to themselves and also members of the public.

“The long-term outcome for constant offenders who drive whilst disqualified is imprisonment.”

Anyone who wants to report a crime in their area should contact police on 101 or, alternatively information can be passed anonymously to the registered charity on 0800 555 111.
