On October 1, 2013, a stolen 1934 Harley Davidson model 34C motorcycle was recovered at the Morongo Basin CHP Office. The motorcycle was originally stolen in July, 1985 in St. Paul, Minnesota in a residential burglary.
The motorcycle was brought to the CHP office for a VIN inspection by a Joshua Tree resident who claimed that he received the motorcycle in exchange for labor in 1985 when he was a Minnesota resident.
The owner of the motorcycle, now a resident of Wyoming, was contacted on October 28, 2013 after the CHP office received the original stolen vehicle report from the St. Paul Police Department and tracked down the owner.
The owner was ecstatic that his motorcycle had been recovered and is making arrangements to ship the vehicle home.
