ORANGEBURG, S.C. — The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a person in connection with the theft of a motorcycle from an Orangeburg dealer.
“We have video of two individuals who steal the motorcycle,” Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. “But we also have two individuals on video earlier in the day looking at the bike who we are calling persons of interest at this point.”
Deputies were dispatched to the Road and Track cycle shop in response to an active alarm around 2 a.m. on December 27, 2019.
According to law enforcement, deputies checked the building for anyone inside after finding a door ajar. They discovered a green Kawasaki 450cc dirt bike was missing after the owner of the shop arrived on scene.
The bike is valued at approximately $5,000.
Security video shows two subjects running straight to the Kawasaki after entering the building. One subject takes the bike while a second subject tries, but fails, to take another.
According to law enforcement, an earlier video from the previous afternoon depicts two subjects in the shop during store hours inspecting the motorcycle.
If anyone has any information on the two persons of interest shown in the video, they are asked to call the OCSO at 803-534-3550 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. Callers can remain anonymous.
