Feds, Fairfax break up stolen-motorcycle ring

November 2, 2009 by · Comments Off on Feds, Fairfax break up stolen-motorcycle ring 

Federal customs officers say they have rolled up a motorcycle theft ring that stole bikes from Maryland and Virginia and smuggled them overseas.

Agents at the Port of Baltimore were alerted by Fairfax County police investigating an auto theft ring who said a shipping container bound for Bolivia might contain stolen motorcycles.

The agents used a database to find a container still in the seaport that matched the description offered by the police in Virginia.

Federal agents pulled the container from the ship, opened it and found four salvage cars or sport utility vehicles. Salvage vehicles are vehicles usually purchased at auction for their parts value.

Inside the salvage cars were boxes containing disassembled motorcycles — a 2009 Harley-Davidson Night Train and a 2007 Kawasaki ZX660J.

Virginia State Police Help Eliminate Auto Theft (HEAT) Event

October 28, 2008 by · Comments Off on Virginia State Police Help Eliminate Auto Theft (HEAT) Event 

Virginia State Police and Roanoke City Police will be conducting a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) etching event for automobile and motorcycle owners who would like to have their vehicles protected against theft on Saturday, November 1, 2008 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Target parking lot at Valley View Mall in Roanoke.

This free service is part of the Virginia State Police Help Eliminate Auto Theft (HEAT) Program. VIN numbers will be permanently etched on the vehicle or motorcycle. Having VIN numbers marked on the vehicles steers thieves away. VIN etching takes away any potential profit thieves may make. VIN etching is simple, fast, safe and won’t mar the look of the vehicle or motorcycle. In addition to the etching, officers will be on hand to educate vehicle and motorcycle owners on how to prevent auto theft in their communities.
