A Tauranga man has been reunited with his motorcycle after it was stolen at the Greerton Village Cherry Blossom Festival.

Constable Jonathan Mitchell says police would like to thank members of the public for their help in the investigation.

“We would like to thank everyone who contacted us with information about a 1973 Norton Commando motorcycle stolen at the Greerton Cherry Blossom Festival,” says Jonathan.

“The bike was recovered by the Tauranga South Police Tactical Crime Unit earlier this afternoon from a local address.

“The owner has been reunited with his biker, and he's very grateful to have it back.

“We are continuing to conduct enquiries in relation to the theft, and no arrests have been made at this stage.”

A green van believed to have been involved in the theft was found on Monday, thanks to a tip off to police by a reader who had first seen the story on SunLive.
