Stolen Motorcycle Recovery, Arrest
1600 blk 72nd St E, Midland
Incident # 24-119-00664

A patrol deputy was driving through a grocery store parking lot when he spotted a woman sitting on the back of motorcycle that didn’t have a license plate. The woman told the deputy that the motorcycle belonged to her boyfriend, who was inside the store. The deputy checked the VIN and learned the motorcycle had been stolen in King County. When the suspect exited the store, he saw the deputy and walked back inside. He eventually walked towards the motorcycle and the deputy told him to sit on his patrol car bumper. Instead, the suspect fled on foot. The deputy (who is one of the fastest on our department) gave chase and tackled the suspect. Backup arrived and the 37-year-old suspect was arrested. The 25-year-old female passenger fled the scene as well, but deputies located and arrested her in a nearby apartment complex. Both suspects were booked into jail for unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle. The male suspect was also booked for resisting arrest. The deputy who tackled the male suspect suffered a minor injury and received medical treatment.

11800 28th Ave E, Parkland
Incident # 24-119-00876

A deputy contacted the victim of an attempted fraud. The victim told him that he had listed a tractor for sale on Offer Up for $51,000. He was then contacted via text message by someone who wanted to purchase it. He said he knew he shouldn’t have responded, but he did anyway. The “buyer” sent a $51,000 check via UPS. The victim took the check to his bank and they told him it was fake. The check appeared to come from a foundation run by the family who owns the Kansas City Chiefs, although the return address on the envelope was in North Carolina. The victim had yet not transferred possession of the tractor.
