Man wanted after stuffing dirt bike into tiny car
BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies are searching for a brave crook who stole a dirt bike from the back of a pick up in a business parking lot recently.
The theft happened at Friendly Yamaha Honda. The business posted the crime on Facebook and alerted sheriff's deputies, who said Monday they are investigating.
The crook drove a small, hatchback sedan and was able to load the bike into the storage area of the tiny vehicle.
Security camera footage captures the unidentified man pull into the parking lot and maneuver about briefly before parking near the pickup with the bike in the bed. The man is seen lowering the truck's tailgate, removing the bike and loading it into the back of his car.
The innovate crook was almost able to close the hatch, but it did not close all the way.
Deputies said the bike was valued at about $1,700.
