GILBERT, AZ — A Gilbert man helped police track down the suspect who allegedly stole his motorcycle four years ago, according to court documents.
Gilbert police say that on September 17, 2014, a man reported his motorcycle was stolen from his garage. He provided police with surveillance video of the theft and the suspect.
In October 2018, the victim located his motorcycle on 'Offer Up' and called the police.
Detectives went to the sale location and reportedly confirmed the motorcycle for sale belonged to the victim.
They contacted all the people who had possession of the motorcycle since the time of the theft.
Their investigation lead them to a man who bought the motorcycle just two months after it was stolen. That man provided police with information and documents linking 30-year-old Jaden Alan Noe to the theft.
Police matched Noe's photo with the image from the surveillance video, including matching tattoos.
Upon his arrest on June 5, Noe allegedly admitted to his signature on the documents and agreed that the tattoos in the video matched his tattoos, but denied stealing the motorcycle.
He has been charged with burglary and theft.
