Police say they suspect a theft ring may be at work after three motorcycles were taken in a month's time in the same general area.

The first bike was stolen on Jan. 21 from the Parkside Condominiums parking lot on Parkside Village Drive. The 2012 Honda CBR 1000RR with a black windshield was valued at $14,700.

The second bike was stolen Feb. 25 from Fran's Auto Mart on U.S. Business Highway 70. The fact that the 2006 Honda CBR 1000 was locked up under a metal shelter didn't deter the thieves who made off with the bike valued at $8,000.

A third bike was taken Feb. 27 from the Amelia Village Apartments on Kershaw Lane. The 2008 Yamaha Yzf R6s was valued at $4,500. Police received a tip Thursday and recovered the Yamaha from an apartment complex near Triangle Town Center in Raleigh.

Detectives say it appears the bikes were hauled away, not driven, and they believe they're either being sold or stripped down for parts.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (919) 359-TIPZ (8479) or Detective Jason Linder at (919) 553-4611.
