Somerville Police Conducted Sting for a Stolen Motorcycle found on a "For Sale" Ad.

In October 2021, the Somerville Police Detective Bureau followed up on a report from a Resident of a breaking and entering of a garage on Knowlton Street.  Two motorcycles were reported stolen by the owner who later spotted his motorcycle on a "For Sale" advertisement. With the cooperation of Fall River Police, the Somerville Police were able to recover one of the two motorcycles by conducting a sting and arranging to purchase the high-performance motorcycle from a seller who agreed to meet in Fall River.  The sting proved successful, charges were filed and the motorcycle was returned to its owner.  The second motorcycle was also recovered in October by the Boston Police Department.
