LoJack Busts Two Las Vegas Motorcycle Theft Rings In Less Than 48 Hours
Las Vegas is the home of casinos, bright lights, and two busted motorcycle theft rings that were brought down by LoJack in less than 48 hous.
According to the LoJack Corporation homepage, LoJack For Motorcycles was instrumental in helping Las Vegas police and the Southern Nevada Auto Theft Task Force break up two theft rings June 14-16. The operations led to the recovery of four Honda CBR motorcycles, a Yamaha ATV and the arrest of 10 suspects.
“Motorcycle riders need to do everything in their power to protect their valuable assets, because professional thieves can steal a bike right out of your garage and hide it in theirs,” said Patrick Clancy, Vice President of Law Enforcement, LoJack Corporation.
It all started when a Las Vegas resident left his garage door open and later discovered his 2006 Honda CBR600 motorcycle stolen.
Once the LoJack Unit was activated, Las Vegas police and the Southern Nevada Auto Theft Task Force located the stolen bike in the garage of a known street gang member.
