Motorcycle Thefts Increase

They guzzle very little gas and always seem to be in style.

Maybe that's why many people are turning to motorcycles for transportation.

Somebody is stealing motorcycles in our region and police need your help to catch the crooks.

The security camera at the Ashland Plaza Hotel parking lot caught a thief stealing a Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Sgt. Mark McDowell with Ashland Police says four motorcycles have been stolen in just the last 3 months.

Besides the bike parked at the hotel, others were nabbed in front of the Ashland Town Center, Ruby Tuesdays and the YMCA.

McDowell says there are 2 suspects in the Harley Davidson Soft Tail stolen at the Plaza Hotel.

One suspect was a lookout, a white male, slim build, bald head, pencil line side burns , beard and moustache and tattoos on arms.

The man who drove off on the bike is a white male, heavy build, 6 feet two to 6 ft. four with long sleeves and a ball cap.

Police say thieves could be targeting the bikes for better gas mileage or for parts.

You can protect your motorcycle from being taken so easily either with an alarm or locking it up with a chain or rotor lock.

There is a cash award for information that can help police catch the suspects.

    Its pretty obvious that these guys know what there doin. My guess is they (police) need to look at the 1%er motorcycle club that is located in the state across the river. (16)
