Police raid Arlington home thought to be cycle chop shop



Authorities say they have broken up what they suspect was a motorcycle chop shop operating in a residential neighborhood in south Arlington.
The red brick house with white trim in the 7200 block of George Finger Road was packed with what investigators believe are stolen motorcycle parts, said Jesse Minton, a detective with the Tarrant Regional Auto Crimes Task Force. The house is near the intersection with East Harris Road.
“It is a three-bedroom house and two bedrooms were basically being used as storage,” Minton said. “There were shelves and hanging racks with fairings. We’ve got three motorcycle batteries, mufflers, tires and gas tanks.
“That attic was packed.”
The house was under surveillance for several days, he said. On Tuesday night, investigators saw someone rolling two motorcycles that they had reason to believe were stolen into the garage.
Officers got a search warrant and served it at 7 a.m. Wednesday, he said. No one answered the door when officers knocked, so they forced entry.
Inside, they found a man, a woman and a young child, Minton said. The man, Van Su Tran, was arrested on suspicion of felony theft. His age was not immediatly available.
Investigators have recovered three stolen motorcycles, two that were reported missing in north Dallas and one in Arlington. Most of the stripped parts came from Yamahas, Suzukis, and Hondas, he said.
Each of those motorcycles are worth between $6,000 and $10,000, he said.
“We have 28 motorcycle batteries, so if each one represents a stolen motorcycle, that is a lot,” Minton said.
Further arrests could follow, he said.

No, you just put forth a bunch of logic and sensible thought failing to forward the value of the conversation at all.

Black still corners best, too.

Yellow is very fast, witnessed by the quickness of a yellow bike's ability to launch earthward from a loading ramp.

But, it's still not as fast as black.

Yeah and black falls over in your garage and at the gas station. You will get to see Zippy and his yellow duc disappear in front of you.

I thought the point was to hold an argument from two diametrically apposed views, your's and the correct one.

And, yes black is fast but not the top dog in speed... or cornering

Don't they paint big, ugly things black so they're less noticeable? Isn't that why most radiators are black? (Maybe just a myth, but Jim's bikes seem to reinforce that notion. :mischief:)

you missed. By a lot.

yellow might be all flashy - but it ain't red. Stoner's bike is red. Stoner is the MotoGP World Champion. Bayliss's bike is red. Bayliss is the World Superbike Champion. Black doesnt even make it up on the podium. Too busy sniffing flowers along the side of a country road to even make it to the grid. Sorta fits in with the whole HD cruiser life style.. you just need one of those benny caps.

What were Stoner's biggest advantages last year? his tires and his motor. What color were they? I rest my case.
