Motorcycle Thief Takes ‘Wrong’ Kind of Bike Offroad
Pasco police and the Washington State Patrol have reunited this motorcycle with it's owner, after it was found dumped in a field just off SR 12 by the river, near Sacajawea Road.
Police on patrol had noticed the bike sitting out in the field, an unusual place for such a custom ride. One of the Pasco officers was able to get the bike safely up the hill to the waiting tow truck, the WSP alerted the driver and they have been reunited.
Turns out the bike was reported stolen out of West Richland. A variety of theories, ranging from it was dumped after a joyride, to perhaps the rider realized it was more than they could handle. Other than a damaged ignition, the bike was intact. No word if any leads on a suspect.
