Three motorbikes have also been seized by local officers and inquiries into other reported incidents are ongoing.
PC Ryan Marshall from the Downfield Community Policing Team said:“The use of unregistered scrambler-type motorbikes in such a manner is an on-going problem for the local community, and the Strathmartine LCPP has set up a community group involving partner agencies and local residents to help tackle the issue.
“Although there are those users who give no thought to causing damage, there are also owners and users who simply don’t appreciate or consider their actions or the regulations surrounding their proper use.”
Both have been reported to the Youth Justice Assessor and the Procurator Fiscal.
