Moped thieves have been left frustrated after members of the public caught them out in Dorchester.

Details of the night of crime have only just been released by Dorset Police.

It was a moment of triumph for residents on Mountain Ash Road and those from Challacombe Square in Poundbury last Saturday evening (17th November 2012).

In separate incidents that occurred between 5.30pm and 6.30pm, audacious thieves tried to steal motorbikes from both locations.

What they didn't know is they were being watched by people nearby, who alerted the Police.

In Poundbury though a group of local people took matters into their own hands and intervened, detaining the man before Officers arrived.

Dorset Police arrested both men who they say are helping them with enquiries.
