A SOUTHAMPTON couple are asking the community to help them find their stolen motorbikes.

Oriana Corvalan and her boyfriend Riccardo Martin Casanova were left in tears when they woke on Friday morning and realised their Yamaha MT-09 and Yamaha KTM RC 125 – worth a total of £13,000 – had been stolen from their garage near their flat in Banister Road.

Miss Corvalan, 20, who works as a bar supervisor in the city, said: “My boyfriend was going to work at 6am on Friday morning, he went downstairs and he didn’t find the bikes.

“The only thing we enjoy doing was riding bikes.

“I feel devastated.”

She said the motorbikes were in the garage before her 27- year-old boyfriend went to bed at 1am.

She said none of them heard anything overnight and added that the motorbikes were more than 100kg each.

“I don’t know how they managed to get them. I don’t really know what happened.

“They had to break in, break the door, carry heavy equipment to do that because the motorbikes were really heavy and there were alarms as well,” she added.

She said the alarms did not go off and none of the other six cars in the garage was stolen.

Ms Corvalan said her motorbike was brand-new as she bought it three weeks ago after she passed her driving test.

“We don’t have a car, we just had our motorbikes.

“We have always been very careful, we used to cover them every night.

“The motorbike means everything to me, now I need to save money again and buy a new one,” she added.

She is now hoping the community will help her and her boyfriend find their motorbikes.

Hampshire police are also urging witnesses to come forward.

A spokesman for the force said: “At 6.42am on Friday, March 15, officers received a report of a burglary at a garage in Banister Road, Southampton.

“Entry was forced to the garage sometime between midnight and 6am that morning, and two motorbikes were stolen.

“No arrests have been made and the investigation has been filed pending any further lines of enquiry coming to light.

“We would urge anyone with information to contact us on 101 quoting 44190090406.”
