[ARCHIVED] Motorcycle Theft Series Identified

The Frederick Police Department would like to advise the community of a series of motorcycle thefts it has identified.

FPD recently received a number of motorcycle theft reports in a fairly short period of time. The stolen motorcycles were all 600cc Kawasaki Ninjas. In collaboration with vehicle theft investigators from neighboring jurisdictions, FPD has learned that the Frederick series may be related to a larger series throughout the state in which many models of "sport" motorcycles, not just Kawasaki Ninjas, are being targeted. Owners of such motorcycles are encouraged to take preventive security measures such as :
---parking inside a secure garage
---use of security devices such as wheel locks, clamps, cables, alarms, and vehicle locators
---parking in well-lit areas
---placement of additional identifying marks in hidden locations on the motorcycle

Residents are reminded to telephone immediately if they see any suspicious behavior, activity, or vehicles. The non-emergency telephone number for FPD is (310) 600-2101. Anonymous tips can be called in to (301) 600-TIPS (8477.)
