KENNEWICK, WA - Kennewick Police are looking for the thieves who are stealing Harley Davidson Motorcycles for the first time in more than a year. 

Police say three Harleys have been stolen in Kennewick in the last 30 days. Officers say this is the first time they have taken reports like these since before 2012. 

Police say the first motorcycle was stolen from the 1200 block of First Avenue. Officers say Joshua Hall was storing his black and red 1983 Harley Davidson motorcycle with ape hanger handle bars in a shed. While the bike wasn't running, it's now missing from the property.

Police say the second motorcycle was stolen from the 400 block of South Anderson. Officers say someone stole the black Harley Davidson Dyna Low Rider from Russell Martin's back patio while he was sleeping. Martin told police his yard didn't have a lock, and the bike didn't need a key to start.

Benton County Sheriff Deputies did find Martin's motorcycle in the Snake River on Tuesday near the Two Rivers Boat Launch. However, they were only able to recover the frame. 

Police say the third motorcycle theft happened on the 6000 block of West Kennewick Avenue. Officers say someone stole Aaron Tribbett's Candy Apple Red 2012 Harley Davidson Sportster with aftermarket handlebars. Tribbett says the front wheel was locked and the 700 lb. motorcycle would have had to be carried away from the location. Police say the bike was outside near Tribbett's front door. 

Kennewick Police Sgt. Ken Lattin says officers believe these thefts are related.

"We have a group of thieves out there looking for them, targeting Harley Davidson motorcycles. All years from the mid-70's all the way up to 2012 as the newest one. Clearly we have thieves looking for those types of motorcycles right now," said Lattin.

Officers say these incidents are a reminder for anyone with a motorcycle to keep their bike secure, inside a locked garage when left unattended. The cases are still under investigation.
