One of the riders is thought to have been from the Bournville area with the other two from the Coronation estate.The seizure comes after repeated police warnings about the use of illegal mini mopeds in the town and numerous complaints from residents about the antisocial nuisance they cause.Sgt Gareth Starr said: "Hopefully, the confiscation sends out a strong message that we will not tolerate this antisocial behaviour. "These machines can only be used on private land with the landowner's consent. They cannot be used on the road, pavement, cycle paths, verges or any place to which the public has access.
