Motorcycle Thefts on the Rise

Police are suggesting that owners install tracking devices.

There has been a spike in motorcycle thefts in the L.A. coastal communities., according to the Los Angeles Police Department Pacific Division. 

Owners are urged to lock their motorcycles and store them in a safe place whenever possible, as thieves have been picking up motorcycles and transporting them away in vans.

Police are recommending that owners install an alarm system on the bike that detects movement and add a hidden tracking device.

Some motorcycles have been also been stolen from underground parking garages.

Police have not released the exact number of bikes stolen, but Patch will follow up with any updates when those numbers become available.

My 2008 Honda CBR1000rr was stolen from my underground parking spot located in Mariners Village in Marina Del Rey on 4/20. Its very unique and hard to miss. The bike is burgundy red, lowered and stretched 300 rear with chrome rims. Please be out on the look out and there is a $1000 reward posted on stolenmotorcycleregistry.com to validate the authenticity of my offer. Please email me direct at xaxaones@gmail.com... thank you for reading this!...
