PHOENIX - An alert 'Motocity' employee recorded a conversation with a motorcycle thief as he left the scene of a theft.
Phoenix police report that on June 22 an employee of 'Motocity' was on his way to work when he saw a 2017 Kawasaki KX250 motorcycle going down the road. He recorded the motorcycle and rider and even stopped to talk to the rider, "acting like he was interested in riding with him."
He then reportedly showed the suspect’s picture to several other employees who recognized him as 37-year-old Jeremy Jarod Anderson.
Anderson, who was already on felony release, was tracked to his home near 30th Avenue and New River Road. A citizen allegedly reported to police that Anderson was indeed in possession of a stolen motorcycle.
Police confronted him outside his home where he reportedly admitted to taking the bike. The Kawasaki was located inside the house and was returned to 'Motocity."
Anderson is being held without bond on charges of burglary, vehicle theft, and criminal damage.
