Cache of stolen motorcycle parts worth $200,000 found in Wisconsin

Cache of stolen motorcycle parts worth $200,000 found in Wisconsin

“Authorities in Wisconsin and Minnesota are piecing together the story of how $200,000 worth of motorcycle parts stolen in both states have ended up in a storage unit in Hudson, WIsc.

Hudson police executed a warranted search at the unit Oct. 8 and found the cache. The tip came from the Minneapolis Police Department but multiple agencies are involved in the ongoing investigation including police from St. Paul, North St. Paul and Washington County.

Hudson Police Department Det. Shawn Pettee estimates there are parts from around a dozen different motorcycles including thousands of dollars in aftermarket parts like handlebars and exhaust pipes.

Four of the bikes have already been claimed by their owners. “These people know their bikes down to the smallest scratch or dent and we’re using those kinds of things to identify them. They also have nice photos of them and we’ve been able to match several of them to their miscellaneous parts,” Pettee the Star Observer.

Authorities are hoping to learn more as more owners come forward and when a representative of the National Insurance Crimes Bureau inspects the parts over the next few days. The NICB registers stolen vehicles and works with law enforcement on recovery.

Pettee said the person who rents the storage unit was notified of the search warrant but he has not yet been taken into custody. He does not live in Hudson.

Anyone who thinks parts of their motorcycle may be among the stolen property or who has any information related to the investigation should contact Pettee at the HPD at (715) 386-4771.”

Spooky discovery stalls construction of new Vandervest Harley-Davidson – Local

Spooky discovery stalls construction of new Vandervest Harley-Davidson in Green Bay, Wisconsin

“Anyone who’s ever embarked on a major construction project knows to expect delays, but the owners of Dealernews Top 100 dealership Vandervest Harley-Davidson are facing delays for a strange reason: skeletons in the closet.

More accurately, in the ground under the construction site for the new dealership in Howard, Wisc. Efforts are under way to uncover additional bones after two human skulls and other remains were found yesterday at the construction site.

Brown County Medical Examiner Al Klimek told the Appleton Post Crescentthe site is an undocumented burial site. Investigators do not think the remains were left as the result of criminal activity.

Excavation workers found the remains about 6 to 7 feet below ground in an area suspected to be virgin soil. The workers stopped and notified authorities.

Brown County Sheriff’s Capt. David Konrath says the site owner is required to make arrangements with the Wisconsin Historical Society to hire an archeologist, who will process the rest of the scene, formerly a farmstead.

Rick Vandervest and Eric Vandervest bought the 4.75-acre site from Paul, Linda and Todd Kaczrowski. They plan to convert it into a Harley-Davidson retail and service center. The Vandervests own Vandervest Custom Cycles, a used motorcycle dealership, and Vandervest Harley-Davidson in Peshtigo.”

State of Michigan increases snowmobile permit price

State of Michigan increases snowmobile permit price

“Michigan snowmobilers will face higher trail fees this season. The state has raised the price for a season permit to $45, from $35 last year.

The fee will remain $45 through the 2015 snowmobile season. A state law signed in 2008 provided for the incremental increase in snowmobile trail fees, which support maintenance and grooming of the state’s snowmobile trail network.

“We have strong relationships with our partners in the snowmobile community,” Jim Radabaugh, section manager for the DNR’s Recreation and Trails Program in the Forest Management Division, told the Niles Daily Star. “It is because of our partnership with 68 snowmobile trail sponsors that Michigan is able to offer over 6,400 miles of designated, groomed and signed trails.”

The fee hike is to keep up with rising trail maintenance and preservation costs.”
