Keeping Dallas Safe: North Central Officers Arrest Motorcycle Thief

On March 8, 2016, at about 2:35 p.m., officers in the North Central Patrol Division observed three suspicious individuals walking in the parking lot of the Subway near Coit and LBJ approaching people. All three suspects then got into a truck and drove away from the location. Officers were able to see that there was a motorcycle laid over in the bed of the truck. Officers stopped the truck for a traffic violation and observed that the license plates had been removed from the motorcycle and it appeared to have been hotwired. A check of the motorcycle revealed that it had been reported stolen the day before from the Uptown area of Dallas. The driver of the truck was arrested for felony theft and transported to Lew Sterrett Jail.
