Police Beat: Stolen motorcycle recovered Downtown

 A collision involving a van and a motorcycle occurred on Stone Avenue Feb. 11 just after 3 p.m. in front of PCC Downtown Campus.

A report from the PCC Department of Public Safety said witnesses identified a man as the operator of the motorcycle. The man parked the motorcycle and walked toward the campus buildings without responding to an officer’s lights or siren. The man was bleeding from the elbow, but refused medical attention the officer offered.

A records search showed the motorcycle had been reported stolen. The man claimed a friend loaned him the bike, but could provide no further details. He was arrested on charges of theft, displaying a fictitious license, driving while suspended and not having car insurance.

The owner of the can assessed damage to his vehicle at $2,500. He was not charged with any violations.
