BALTIMORE (WMAR) - Officers with the Baltimore Police Department are looking to eliminate illegal dirt bike riding in the city. As a part of that effort, they recently seized more than a dozen bikes from a local business.
Detectives from the Baltimore Police Department’s regional auto theft task force executed two search and seizure warrants on units inside of the EZ-Storage self-storage company located at 3006 Druid Park Drive last Wednesday. Officials with the police department say they found 15 dirt bikes and/or ATVs -- of which six were stolen and three had obliterated serial numbers.
Investigators say the search warrants were obtained after dirt bikes and ATVs were observed being ridden from the storage company and into the city.

Officials say information from the public played a role in the investigation.
