A total of 62 ATVs and dirt bikes were destroyed in Capital Heights, producing over 14,000 of recyclable metal. Police say the bikes were either confiscated during arrests or abandoned in public spaces.
“The community is fed up with this behavior. As long as they continue endangering the lives of everyone on our streets, MPD will continue confiscating and destroying these vehicles,” he added.
Police are looking to confiscate more ATVs being used in public spaces. There is a $250 reward for anyone with information on that leads to the recovery of these off-road vehicles.
