Teenager charged in connection with ASB in Ipswich.


A teenage boy has been charged in connection with anti-social motorcycle use in south-east Ipswich.
At around 2.45pm on Sunday 14 April officers on patrol in the Nansen Road area witnessed a scrambler bike being ridden on the road, which was not registered to be used on the public highway and therefore not insured. 
When officers approached the rider he initially refused to hand the bike over, but it was subsequently seized for being used without insurance.
A 16-year-old boy from Ipswich was subsequently arrested and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
He was subsequently charged with the following three offences: obstructing a police officer in the execution of their duty; driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence; and using a motor vehicle without insurance. He was released on bail to appear at Ipswich Youth Court on Thursday 2 May.
Officers are continuing to investigate reports of anti-social use of motorcycles and scooters in south-east Ipswich, in particular in Orwell Country Park and the areas of Pipers Vale, Braziers Wood and Bridge Wood.
This reckless and irresponsible activity is causing damage to the area, as well as alarming members of the public and disturbing wildlife. 
Anyone who has knowledge of the individuals concerned should contact Ipswich East SNT on 101, or email [email protected] quoting reference 20316/19.
