The police report listed 3 or 4 different owners by first and last name. Hopefully he is innocent but that looks really really bad. I never read his explanation but I don't understand how you allow yourself to be put in a position that you are in possession of at least 3 stolen vehicles. In my opinion if he is innocent then he obviously trusted someone too much and was taken advantage of. Unfortunately, sometimes that's all it takes to get onto the wrong side of the law.

That is 2 different things there.

If two friends leave their bikes in my garage, police would find 3 bikes with 3 different names.

If 3 bikes are reported stolen, then found in my garage, THEN they have found stolen bikes in my possession.

Ok, so if the stolen bike was droppped off for work to be done how come they didn't question / arrest the person who dropped it off?

Do we/you know that haven't... all we can do is speculate until it goes to court and details are released.

No, we don't know but what I do know is that an arrest was made.

Source? I asked a question, I guess I'm the source of the question. From reading this thread I've gathered that the accused does work on motorcycles and a vehicle he had in his possession was a stolen vehicle with a tracking system.

My thought is that if police show up at the Yamaha dealer because a lojack led them there they generally don't arrest the owner of Yamaha, they ask who brought the bike in, description of the person, phone number, name, address, etc.

Now, I can see a smaller shop not taking that info down when a vehicle is dropped off because I've had work done to my vehicles where I just left my name and number, and maybe he semi knew the guy who dropped it off and took nothing down (sucks to be him). Or maybe the cops came gun's blazing and did no detective work, wouldn't suprise me, they are not high on my list of respected gangs right now anyhow - especially when it comes to stolen vehicles.

I guess I'm just wondering what happened, sorry I didn't see the explanation before it was removed, can someone who saw it post the cliffs maybe?

Im sure after it is all said and done the thread started by the "defendent" that had to be removed will come back with a better explination.

are you serious? Wake up man, a membership to this forum doesnt automatically make you an honest guy, There are those that join these forums, go to the meets, look at the bikes and follow them and . don't think it doesnt happen, its not the MH, its the society we live in and the turds that live amongst us.

I doubt it, unless they let you use forums in jail now

if these bikes where at Motorcycles Unlimited I doubt that Patrick would have been arrested so why was this guy. Motorcycles Unlimited would have called the guy and have them come up to look at something on the bike with the cops there to ? Them. Now having experience in this stuff if it is his first time he will get probation and walk. And no I am not a thief but have had it happen to me. Working on bikes at home can be a touchy thing so I always call dps to run the vin for theft on bikes I work on are buy. They will do it for free and it just takes a few minutes.

Im sure if someone came to my house they would think I have a chop shop too. Years of riding the same bike and tons of extra parts that I have accumulated from many members of this board. I have a cruiser and as of a week ago a 2004 zx6r. I have had people ride by and see me working on my bike they stop and ask if I could take a look at a problem they might have as well. I read the guys explanation before it was deleted and honestly its something that could happen to me as well. I never ran vin numbers for peoples bikes im working on and im pretty sure NONE of you do either. The reason why shop owners do not get arrested is because they are a shop and not a individual working out of his garage. Do you guys think if you took a stolen car to discount tire they would run the vin? NO they just wanna do the work and make the money. The guy is a racer and im sure that if you looked at his garage it would look just like mine. Besides if it was a big chop shop don't you think criminals would be smart enough to see if the bike they just stole had low jack? I remember when I was dating Joy she won lowjack from a raffle and the shop that installed it just stuck it next to the battery and it wasnt to hard to miss. Seems like everyone on here now just likes to bash everyone.

Yep pretty gay.I guess but you won't see me with stolen property. Dps will do this for you and if it is stolen they will come and investigate it. As with every post from some one giving people a way to check out bikes that might not be legal it gets bashed.

You asked "How come they didn't question or arrest the person who dropped it off?" By asking this, you are STATING that they DID NOT question or arrest the guy who dropped it off. And you're ASKING, "Why didnt they?"

I was asking where you read that the person who dropped the stolen bike off was not questioned or arrested. How do you know that? Not who asked the question.

Why would you drop off a bike to get a exhaust done that takes maybe a hour? MAYBE? Ok 2 hours...lol OK 3 cause they were doing a full system on the stolen bike..so they could get the extra horse power running from the cops...

this is why shops do "work orders". keeps a documented paper trail to cover their . nobody working on a buddys bike in their garage is going to do a work order, nor will they call DPS. thats just ridiculous.
