Lindenwold New Jersey police recently busted two men who allegedly stole multiple dirt bikes.
The Lindenwold Police Department got a report about two suspects who were loading motorcycles into a grey van parked outside a vacant house on Chestnut Avenue in Lindenwold, NJ. When police officers got to the scene, they observed the van pulling away.
Lindenwold NJ police followed the van as it drove toward White Horse Pike. When the van arrived at the 100 block of East Elm Avenue, the officers pulled over the vehicle. At that point, one of the suspects reportedly got out of the van and tried to flee the scene on foot. He reportedly headed into a wooded area near the roadway.
Meanwhile, the 22-year-old driver of the van remained inside the van. Police arrested him without incident.
Lindenwold police set up a perimeter and canvassed the area in search of the other suspect. Police eventually apprehended the 21-year-old suspect.
A subsequent search of the suspects’ van reportedly turned up three stolen motorcycles. The bikes were registered to a person who had reported them stolen earlier in the day. The bikes are believed to have a combined value of roughly $9,000.
Law enforcement said that the suspects’ van was unregistered.
Both suspects live in Lawnside, New Jersey. They were charged with several crimes, including burglary, theft of movable property, and criminal mischief. The suspects were also cited for numerous traffic violations.
After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspects were remanded to the Camden County Correctional Facility.
