"I do believe we've identified our scofflaw, gentlemen."

"Oh, top-notch policing there, Sherlock."

Ogden was charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle, resisting arrest and occupied burglary.

Unlike Unoccupied Burglary which is considered a victimless crime because no one was home.

What kind of motorcycle was it?

What motorcycle has the encrypted chip in the key?  If it doesn't have the chip, it can be started without a key.  It will cause damage, but it can be started and driven.

I use a backpack every day for my commute, but I'm 36.

All the newer fuel injected bikes from Suzuki, Kawasaki, etc have anti-theft features. The euro versions use the RFID keys. The North American versions have a resistor in the ignition switch so you can't just yank the wires and hot wire the bike. One of the wires needs a voltage less than the battery voltage. The starter will spin but the coils won't fire.

Ducati switched to using chipped transponder keys and key cards some time around 2001.  I'm pretty sure all modern streetbikes (well, modern Harleys can still be started with a rusty screwdriver) are on RFID as well.

But, as an interesting side note...  When the Ducati released the Diavel and Multistrada 1200 they had a keyless ignition that allowed you to start the bike after entering a four digit code.  Some rocket surgeon at Ducati decided, "Hey, let's make factory installed code the last four digits of the VIN!"  The same VIN that's stamped right on the frame in plain sight.

Dealer SOP was supposed to be to teach the customer how to set their own custom four digit PIN after the sale, but if you know what motorcycle dealers are like, that didn't exactly happen.

"Detectives are still investigating a link to an ongoing yard sale that advertises motorcycles for $100 or best offer"...

Yeah, that's fanny-pack age.

I bet yours in nice.

Well, they've got to set it to something. If they'd set it to 1234, theives would simply learn to use that.
