Police are looking for two people who went for a joyride on a stolen child-sized quad bike in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Masterton Senior Sergeant Mike Sutton said the Kawasaki quad bike was taken from a shed at a Te Ore Ore Rd property at about 4am. Two people had been seen leaving the property on the quad bike, and were later spotted in the Archer/Bannister St area.

Police found the quad bike in the cemetery, but were unable to locate the riders.

A chainsaw also stolen from the shed had not yet been found.

Mr Sutton said police were still checking the quad bike for fingerprints.

If you have information, contact Masterton police station on 06 370 0378 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 11.
