Stolen bike returned to owner years later

A stolen motorcycle that spent two years sitting in an Ohio impound yard was recently returned to its owner.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that the 1977 Yamaha 400 dirt bike was found in 2006 lying in a creek bed. At the time, the Blanchester Police had no procedure to locate the owner.

Several months ago, the police started a process to return stolen property in custody to their owners. One of the items was the bike.

Through a search of motor records and some detective work, the owner (who now lives in Pennsylvania) was found and confirmed through photographs of the bike.
