Updated dirt bike theft prevention tips

Westminster, Carroll County, Maryland; September 27, 2016 -----  Dirt bike / ATV thefts are continuing to be a problem throughout the region. The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office reminds all dirt bike and ATV owners to follow a few simple tips to help deter thefts.

Most of the thefts that occurred in Carroll County have been from outbuildings such as sheds or unattached garages. This highlights the need for good locks or other security mechanisms, especially if the storage area is not connected to the residence.

When possible, store dirt bikes and ATVs in well-lit areas attached to the house. If that is not an option, consider adding floodlights to the area in which the dirt bikes / ATVs will be stored. And of course, even if the shed is locked, consider adding additional locks to the dirt bikes themselves. The more security measures you use, the greater the deterrent to stealing your property.

Lastly, in the event that an dirt bike or ATV is stolen, have recent pictures of the items along with any vehicle identification numbers that may be associated with the bike. Many dirt bikes have multiple serial numbers for different parts of the bike. Make sure to record the serial number for the frame, engine (which can often be found on the right inner casing), and any other part with a unique identifier. Having this information readily available will speed up the reporting process, and is essential in locating owners when dirt bikes and ATVs are recovered.
