A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and was bailed pending further enquiries.
The motorbike was recovered and it has since been returned to its owner.
Later that day, the team were deployed to Ormesby Road, Middlesbrough, following sightings of a suspected stolen vehicle.
Officers attended the scene but the vehicle reportedly failed to stop for police and a short pursuit took place.

With the assistance of the drone and the Dog Unit, a 17-year-old male was detained and arrested.
The vehicle was also recovered.
