Champlin man, 37, is arrested for possessing the stolen motorcycle
A motorcycle that disappeared while the driver was taking it for a test drive has turned up in Minneapolis.
The victim, a 37-year-old Elk River man, had flagged down an Elk River officer on patrol in the 18200 block of Carson Court at around 7:30 p.m. Sept. 14 to report the incident.
“(He) said that someone had taken his motorcycle that he was selling on a test drive, never came back, would not respond to his messages, and believed that he had stolen it,” according to the police report.
The motorcycle — minus its license plate — was later recovered by the Minneapolis Police Department, which also took the suspect into custody a short time later.
Elk River Police Capt. Joe Gacke said the person taken into custody for possessing the stolen motorcycle was a 37-year-old Champlin man.
