CHP takes down three motorcycle theft rings; 51 arrested

A two-year investigation by the California Highway Patrol led to the seizure of nearly $1 million in stolen motorcycles and parts and 51 arrests across Los Angeles County, officials announced Wednesday.
“We’ve taken down the majority of the main players” within L.A. County’s three main motorcycle theft rings, said CHP Southern Division Chief Dan Bower.
The thieves were professionals who could swipe the bikes in seconds, he said. Often times, they simply lifted them onto pickup trucks and hauled them away.
Officials said the network spread to all edges of the county, at times extending beyond to the Inland Empire.

Awesome!  Bikes are so easy to part out and get rid of quick.

What really pisses me off about this is this is just L.A.

Stealing a man's horse used to be a hanging offense. What happened?
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Real justice went out of style with the give a kid a hug liberal movement in the 1960's.  Now we have everyone wins soccer and blaming everyone else for everything you do wrong.  Didn't you hear about the kid that killed 4 people while DUI and walked because his lawyers said he was privileged and didn't get held accountable for his actions, therefore he didn't know any better?  Yep.  This country is over.

Shocked they even found any bikes. They usually end up in Mexico within a few hours after they are stolen.

Take the crooks and bury them up to their necks next to a huge anthill.

That actually hasn't been true for a very long time now. Not since the '80s, in fact.

Yeah, I would think with the internet it would be easier and cheaper to sell that way than to transport..
