A citizen complaint in Ajax landed a couple of motorcyclists in trouble with the law, with one man losing his bike to a 14-day impoundment and facing a slew of charges.

Durham Police say a local resident called to complain about two men “speeding, doing wheelies and not wearing helmets” on Finley Avenue Wednesday afternoon. Police responded and subsequently charged a 26 year-old Ajax man with stunt driving, careless driving, driving without plates or insurance and fail to wear helmet.

He had his license suspended for seven days and his motorcycle impounded for two weeks.

The second man, a 27 year-old Ajax man, was charged with careless driving.
