Saints to appear in UK court over stolen motorcycles

Two St Helenian men are to appear before magistrates in the UK after a number of stolen motorcycles were seized on the island.

Ryan Benjamin, 31, and Dominic Benjamin, 23, of Longwood, St Helena, are facing charges of handling stolen motorcycles and a quad bike, and conspiracy to remove stolen property from the UK.

They were arrested following a lengthy joint investigation by St Helena Police, Gloucestershire Police and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs in 2012. 

They will appear before Cheltenham magistrates on 8 May 2013, when the bench will decide whether to send them for trial at crown court.

  • it’s a small number; it’s more of an issue because of the difficulties for a small island in dealing with sucgh matters. But serious efforts are being made.
