Suspects sought in motorcycle theft
Oktibbeha County sheriff’s deputies are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspects responsible for the daylight theft of a motorcycle from a local apartment complex Wednesday morning.
About 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, witnesses saw the 2006 black Suzuki GSX motorcycle being loaded into an two-toned brown early 1980s-model Chrevolet pickup truck and driven from the apartment complex, which deputies declined to name due to the circumstances of the investigation.
Sheriff’s Department investigator Brett Watson did confirm on Thursday that the pickup carrying the motorcycle was last seen near the intersection of Old Mayhew Road and Bardwell Road.
The pickup is described as being brown and tan with a long wheel base and silver tips on the exhaust pipe.
The three suspects — all black males — are described as follows:
• Suspect No. 1 is believed to be around 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds.
He has a dark complexion, a gap between his teeth, a close-cropped haircut and scruffy facial hair.
Believed to be in his mid-30s, the suspect was seen wearing blue jeans and a gray T-shirt.
• Suspect No. 2 is believed to be between 20 and 25 years old and was seen wearing a white sleeveless shirt and a head covering commonly referred to as a “do-rag.”
• Suspect No. 3 is also believed to between 20 and 25 years old, but no description of the clothing he was wearing was given to sheriff’s deputies.
Anyone with information about the suspects’ whereabouts is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Department at 323-2421 or Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 1-800-530-7151.
All Crime Stoppers tips are confidential and could result in a reward of up to $1,000 for the caller if the tip leads to an arrest in this case or any felony crime.
