|State Police say charges have been filed against an Arnoldsburg man related to the theft of a Honda racing bike stolen from the Andy Collins residence on Jake's Fork.|
Trooper J. E. Kincaid says Michael Hall, in his 20s, is being charged with receiving stolen property, with other charges pending.
Police have discovered parts taken from the stolen bike.
"Charges against other individuals are pending," said Trooper Kincaid.
The bike, belonging to Collins' son Jon, was discovered over the hill a short distance from Liberty Hill (US 33-119) on Jesses Run, stripped of expensive parts.
Family members said the culprits, who arrived on a four-wheeler, entered the family garage while they were attending the induction of their son into the National Honor Society.
After discovering the missing bike, the family was able to track the bike and rider, which was driven to Jesses Run, Beech and Pink Road, and back to US 33-119, where the bike was loaded on a truck.
The bike was a 2008 Honda CRF 250R racing bike. Among the parts stripped for apparent sale: Yoshimiro dual carbon fiber exhaust pipes, Acerbis hand guards-white (bark busters), Doug Hudson graphic kit, white radiator guards.
The stolen bike is one of several incidents involving thefts or attempted thefts in southern Calhoun in recent weeks.
