Give that Dog a Bone!

Burglars must hate it when a good theft goes to the dogs. An Overland Park man has his pooch to thank for interrupting the theft of his motorcycle.

Around 4:00 a.m. on August 22nd, the homeowner was awakened by his dog barking. He went to check on his canine and discovered his motorcycle was missing.

About this time, he noticed a man walk out from between the two houses just north of his house. He knew the man did not live at either address, so he confronted him about his missing motorcycle.

The unidentified man denied taking it. When the resident went to get a flashlight, the man fled. He was last seen leaving the area in a white, mid-sized SUV with a black bike rack on top.

The victim then drove around his neighborhood in an attempt to locate the stranger, but he was unsuccessful. When he returned home, he located his motorcycle leaning up against a fence in a neighbor’s back yard.

The person of interest is a white male, approximately 35 years old, 5`06" tall with a stocky build and a mustache.

Anyone with information on the identity of this man is asked to call the Overland Park Police Department at 913-344-8750.
