LoJack for Motorcycles Helps Columbus Auto Theft Unit Bust Motorcycle Theft Ring
Two Suspects Arrested; Two 2008 Suzuki Motorcycles, Parts and More Recovered
WESTWOOD, MA - August 28, 2008: A LoJack For Motorcycles signal led the Columbus Police Auto Theft Unit and Ohio State Highway Patrol officials to a theft ring on Cottage Street in Lockbourne, Ohio on Tuesday, August 26. The operation enabled the recovery of two stolen Suzuki motorcycles, an engine, frame, golf cart, utility trailer and suspected stolen zero-turn mower. A recreational vehicle and various tools were also confiscated. Two males were taken into custody and additional arrests are pending further investigation.
In less than one hour after a Grove City resident's LoJack-equipped 2008 Suzuki GSXR-750 motorcycle was reported stolen and the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System was activated, police recovered the bike in a detached garage in Lockbourne. After executing a search warrant, they discovered the theft ring. The Suzuki GSXR-750 and 2008 Suzuki Hayabusa -- which was stolen out of Columbus the same day the owner purchased the bike -- were both returned to their respective owners.
