Speeding ticket leads to motorcycle theft arrest

Police arrested a 25-year-old man yesterday as a suspect in the theft of a motorcycle that was reported stolen earlier this year from a 29-year-old man.

When the younger man was stopped and issued a speeding citation on Feb. 7 police noted that he was operating a motorcycle with a defaced serial number. Police took possession of the motorcycle at that time and later found the legal owner. The younger man was arrested on suspicion of unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle.

Man arrested for alleged car theft, drug offenses

A 40-year-old man with no local address was arrested in Whitmore Village yesterday after police found him behind the wheel of a car that had been reported stolen.

Beat officers were sent to the 1300 block of Whitmore Avenue after dispatchers received an anonymous call that a man possibly wanted by police was sitting in a car. Officers learned that the car had been reported stolen and arrested the man on suspicion of unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle.

As the man was being taken into custody, police found a glass pipe containing a residue inside the car, leading to the man's arrest on suspicion of third-degree promotion of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia as well.
