On the Morecambe area police Facebook page, officers said: “When we located the bike and were in the process of seizing it a ‘lady’ decided to get involved to try and hinder our recovery of the bike. She believed that by shouting ‘Get the Feds! Get the Feds! Call the police’ that we would stop our course of action. The officer seizing the bike was indeed in full uniform.”

The bike was seized on May 22.
