Posted 10:43 PM 5/16/2012 : Tucson Police confiscate at least 3 stolen motorcycles from home
TUCSON - Police have recovered at least 3 stolen motorcycles at a Southeast Side house.
Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were serving an unrelated warrant around 7 a.m. Wednesday, according to Sgt. Brian Kowalski with the Tucson Police Department.
The house is near Interstate 10 and Wilmot Road.
ATF took 4 people into custody. An arrest warrant from Pima County was already outstanding for 1 of the suspects, according to Kowalski.
The suspects had only been living in the house for about 1 week, according to Kowalski.
ATF found evidence of the possible stolen property and contacted Tucson Police.
TPD detectives served a warrant for stolen property, fraud, counterfeiting and drugs around 1 p.m.
Police found 5 motorcycles in the garage. They only confirmed 3 were stolen, but the others may have also been stolen, according to Kowalski.
Jason Lang lives on the street and owns a motorcycle similar to the confiscated bikes.
"Those things are pretty easy to steal," Lang said. "I always try to be safe with it and try to keep it locked up, but who knows what can happen."
Detectives also found a small amount of drugs in the house, according to Kowalski.
Police also confiscated guns, according to Lang.
Investigators took electronics that may have also been stolen, according to Kowalski.
Lang was relieved they did not take his motorcycle and will not be stealing any more.
"Soon as we can get most of them out of here," Lang said, "everything will be a lot safer around here."
