Blotter: Motorcycle found before owner knew it was stolen

Comments () A Text Size

Sgt. Larry Kish said the Denton County Sheriff’s Office was assisting other agencies during a search warrant execution when they discovered a stolen motorcycle Thursday morning.

The motorcycle, valued at $1,500, was located in the 500 block of Canterbury Park Lane in Ponder, officials said.

Deputies said it was determined the owner hadn’t reported the motorcycle missing yet and when he was notified, the bike was returned.

Kish said the case was still under investigation, but warned residents to lock their homes and keep their garage doors closed to deter theft.

“Keep track of your serial numbers, take pictures of all your valuables, and make unique markings to help investigators locate your missing property,” Kish said.

He said thefts usually occur because burglars are looking to make a quick buck or trade.

“If you see suspicious activity, call the police,” Kish said. “Don’t wait until something happens.”
