What to do if suspicious?

I was driving home from work last night coming 45 South from the woodlands and I see this beat up truck with a trailer behind it full of bikes with no license plates. He had sport bikes, scooters, cruisers, a good amount of bikes squeezed onto this trailer and the bed of his truck. I look and sure enough the plates are out of state. It could have very well been he was just transporting them for a dealer or something, i dunno. My question is, when I see something like this that looks like someone is moving stolen bikes, what can I do? I tried to take some pictures but only had my phone and they came out looking like .

What if you saw a trailer with a bunch of cars on it? You you call anyone? Im thinking he was transporting from an auction. Its not uncommon at all for guys to go to auctions and pick up several out of state bikes. Not trying to bust here.

thinking as a thief here, they are smarter than that. I'll agree with bluewave. It's most likely a legit transaction, but if it ruffles your feathers call 911 and report it. They will send a trooper to investigate.

I say call it in bro. Wouldn't hurt to have it checked out. The next time it could be YOUR stolen bike someone calls in. Better to overreact than to regret in this case.

Man.... I drive a hot shot rig with a 40' trailer and if I ever got stopped because some ****ing super hero citizen called it in for gay reason like that, I'd be more than . Have you ever seen a truck pulling a trailer specifically made for bikes?? Yeah, me neither. Every one I see is exactly how you described. I bet you sure as wouldn't call about all the cars on trailers you see everyday all day.... do people not steal cars?

Get a life fool...

who in your cheerios? Yes, I have on many occasions seen a truck pulling a trailer specifically made for bikes. I bet your output on this changes significantly the day your bike gets lifted.

Time is money in the hotshot game, dude. So being stopped because some guy thinks out of state tags on a bunch of bikes in a truck is suspicious, is ridiculous. There are these things called auctions that many bike shops and individuals purchase bikes from... they've got to get back home somehow.

And my bike being stolen will never change my view on that... quit thinking like the gestapo.

Would you like it if your neighbor called the cops on you because they thought you were running a prostitute ring since you were bringing a different girl home every night??? Because she was suspiscious?

how could I be running a prostitute ring if I was bringing the girls home? And in all honestly, yes I'd gladly accept a patrolman knocking on my door for suspicious activity. Ever heard of neighborhood watch?

paranoid is too broad of a term to use here. People are getting there bikes/cars stolen left and right. If I saw a trailer full of bikes and had a shadow of a doubt they might be stolen, i'd want a little confirmation they weren't.

sorry that I have friends that have had there bikes stolen.

So you're going to harass me about my trailer full of track bikes just because you had a friend have their bike stolen?

Where the fck is your probable cause?

There is a trailer in front of my house right now. They are NOT stolen. If anyone drives by and sees them please dont feel the need to call the cops. Its not a moto specific trailer.

Don't wanna get into an argument with you... because I mostly agree with you, but bikes are not being taken "left and right." They are getting stolen frequently, but no more frequently than you'd expect for a large city like Houston.

To start calling in every single trailer... c'mon lol....

Just yesterday on my way back north to Huntsville, I saw a trailer JUST like the one you are talking about. Was this yesterday by any chance?

It was some rickety old POS trailer with no real decent tie downs. I honestly think the bikes were holding each other up.

I still didn't feel the need to involve cops.

If you see some one LOADING a bike into a van, then you call the cops.
