Awful news about Brock's rig being stolen the other day. Not an H2 topic I know but my friend Jarrod (Jack) Frost's van has been stolen from a hotel near Leeds, UK. It happened last night.

This is what he said: "Words can't describe. Our van has just been stolen in last couple of hours. Near Sherburn in Elmet, Leeds. Inside 3 hayabusa turbo top speed bikes , 3 mountains bikes (2 x specialised camber 29ers, 1 x giant) Snapon roll cab full of Snapon tools, spare wheels and tyres and leathers and helmets and kit. Reward for return"

If any UK forum members/readers see this van (photo attached) please let the Police know. Jack was on his way to the records weekend at Elvington near York. The Hayabusa Turbo's are unique bikes so will not be easy to dispose of. Please help to apprehend these thieves. Whoever they are they had better hope the Police catch them first.

Update: the van has been located in a field near Castleford (UK) but unfortunately they torched it.

I can only assume the people who stole it realised the bikes were too recognisable and decided to destroy any forensic evidence.

Jack is one of the nicest guys and a multiple speed record holder here in the UK. It's so sad to see years of development work in the three bikes and all his kit destroyed in such a heartless way. God only knows how he feels.

That's why I think it was a revenge deal.WHO steals something this valuable,and then destroys it?Even an amateur wouldn't do that.

On being too recognizable, anyone criminal enough to do something like this is criminal enough to strip for parts and get something out of the crime, I would think.

Very sorry about this horrible loss. I've had a bike stolen twice, and my tools stolen, but never hit like this.

FYI, according to official Islamic Koran Faith, if the owner of said property is not of Islamic faith, it's all good if the "thief"
is a follower of Islam. Who would not that rule to be part of law?

Where some are headed 101...

@BobC

Am I reading this correctly, they parked it and torched it with the contents inside ? Or just torched the empty van to destroy evidence of theft ?

The van contained three turbo Hayabusa LSR bikes, a big Snap On tool roller cabinet, all their race leathers and helmets etc plus three mountain bikes.

They took one Hayabusa, the tools and the mountain bikes. The rest they left in the van and set fire to it.

They destroyed years of work by one of our best tuners and LSR riders, look for Jack (Jarrod) Frost on the all-time standing mile list. I really can't express how sick we all feel at this wanton act of destruction. The theft is bad enough on its own. These people don't deserve to breathe the same air as the rest of us.

Yep...one bike for a Trophy,tools that were used to make that dream possible.Mountain bikes..easily repainted and used for fun.Hate crime right here.If they dig deep enough,they'll catch whomever did this.He probably KNOWS the person responsible,just doesn't 'know' it yet.

Thats SO seriously fuked up. I cant believe stuff like that.

But, one thing I have learned thru my life experiences is that the suspect is usually known or frequents the same places or interests. If the owner thinks hard about it, there is a very good likelihood he knows who did it. Random doesn't exist.

If that saved bike was a big winner...pretty much tells the deal right there,IMO.
This almost sounds like an inside job.The van had no windows...probably something behind the seats there blocking off the view of the rear compartment.WHO would know such a van?Possibly had a set of keys?Hmmm.I would think a real pro thief would make sure to clean everything out...MONEY.They could ALWAYS part stuff out.Leaving it to burn?That don't make sense.Whoever it was,they obviously had enough help with em to grab the bike.tools and such.Why leave two when you can snag three?
