Motorcycle thefts decline for fourth straight year in Ohio

DAYTON — Fewer people are ripping off motorcycles in Ohio.

The Dayton Daily News reports that motorcycle thefts in the state declined for the fourth straight year in 2011.

A new report shows the thefts have been cut in half since 2007.

But stolen motorcycles are recovered less frequently than other stolen vehicles, and they remain a popular target for criminals because they are not very difficult to steal.

Numbers from the National Insurance Crime Bureau show that about 1,097 motorcycles were reported stolen in Ohio in 2011, down 25 percent from 1,469 in 2010. The number of bikes reported stolen has decreased 53 percent from 2,350 in 2007.

The decline in motorcycle thefts matches a similar decline in thefts of cars and trucks.
