Helmetless bike thief killed in collision

Helmetless bike thief killed in collision
Manchester, England

Suspect, who previously escaped Police by wearing no helmet, meets sticky end, wearing no helmet


A SUSPECTED motorcycle thief, who police previously refused to pursue in connection with a robbery at a motorbike store because he was not wearing a helmet, has been killed in a motorcycle crash - while wearing no helmet.

Bobby Carl Hodgkins, 24, was one of two men held after the raid on a motorcycle showroom in Altrincham, reported on Visordown last month.

Manchester Police came in for stiff criticism after Officers were told not to pursue the thieves because they were not wearing safety helmets.

However Hodgkins came unstuck at the weekend when he was killed after a collision with a van on Saturday, while riding a stolen motorbike. Police say he was not wearing a helmet.

Mr Hodgkins, from Wythenshawe, had been due to answer bail on 10 September over the thefts of three motorcycles valued at over 17,000 from the Manchester Motorbike Store on 12 August.

it helped him escape because police didnt want to pursue him since he was not wearing a helmet... I guess as a safety measure.
