As part of an investigation into the incident and following community intelligence received about stolen bikes, at 7am this morning (Friday, June 16) officers carried out a search warrant at a unit near Wilson Road, Ely.


11 quad bikes, 9 scrambler motorbikes, two all-terrain vehicles, and one road motorbike have been seized and will be examined.

A 28-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods, careless driving, and cultivation of cannabis.

A 41-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and cultivation of cannabis.

The investigation is ongoing and further enquiries are being carried out by officers.

South Wales Police have asked that anyone who has any CCTV, mobile phone or dashcam footage which will help their investigation into motoring offences committed during the event can be submitted online via a public portal.
