Five months of investigation came to an end this week, resulting in the arrest of a local man and the recovery of a motorcycle stolen in August of 2018.
The motorcycle was stolen from a parking lot on Rosemund Crescent on Friday, Aug. 17, 2018. Two months later, an officer patrolling on Conacher Drive noticed a motorcycle pass him without a license plate on Friday, Oct. 12. The officer also observed that the passenger on the motorcycle was not wearing a helmet.
The officer turned around to stop the pair on the bike, but they were able to quickly part and enter an apartment building. After checking the serial number, the officer was able to determine that the motorcycle was the one stolen from Rosemund Crescent. The officer had recognized the driver, and a warrant was put out for his arrest, according to a press release from Kingston Police.
On Monday, Jan. 14, 2019, Kingston Police received information that the accused man was at an address on Division Street. The accused man was located and arrested. The 37-year-old Kingston man was charged with driving while disqualified and possession of stolen property.
