Police warn Ballard residents of motorcycle thieves

There’s been a rash of motorcycle thefts in the area, and police are warning residents in Ballard, Wallingford and Fremont of the roaming thieves. According to Kiro 7, neighborhood residents received a memo from Seattle Police stating: “Thieves are roaming the neighborhoods in the early morning hours using trucks, mostly rental type trucks of the orange and white variety. There are at least three or four working together as they are lifting the bikes up and carrying them to the trucks despite having disc brake locks and other passive type deterrents.”

Kiro talked to a local bike shop employee who recommended that people park motorcycles in visible areas if there’s no available garage, so neighbors can keep an eye out.
