The Washington State Patrol’s aircraft helped recover a stolen motorcycle last week, the agency reported.
The motorcycle was equipped with a LoJack system, a hidden device that – when activated – sends out locater signals. The motorcycle was reported stolen Wednesday from the owner’s workplace, the State Patrol reported.
Thirty-three minutes after the motorcycle was reported as stolen, the State Patrol’s aircraft picked up its signal and pinpointed it’s location to a garage in the 30200 block of Military Road in Federal Way, trooper reported.
Three people were arrested and other suspected stolen items recovered.
“If you steal things from people, we’re coming after you,” said Lt. Tristan Atkins, commander of WSP’s Aviation Division, in a press release. “This technology is pretty amazing.”
“In essence, you can ride but you can’t hide,” he added.
