Antique Harley Davidsons pilfered from Gypsum structures; fifth one discovered dismantled.

A property owner in Gypsum alerted the Saline County Sheriff's Office about the theft of five Harley Davidsons from both a residential and a commercial property on Saturday, May 4th.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan revealed that the owner, originally from Arizona, inherited both properties from a family member. The discovery unfolded when a vigilant neighbor, while tending to the yard across the street, noticed an open door at the house. Upon investigating, they found that three antique Harley Davidsons had been stolen from the garage on Spring Street. Among them were a blue 1952 Harley Davidson Panhead valued at $30,000, a red 1945 Harley Davidson Knucklehead valued at $100,000, and a red 1942 Harley Davidson Knucklehead valued at $50,000.

The total loss from the Spring Street residence amounted to $180,000, with an additional $100 in damages due to the break-in.

Soldan disclosed that the suspect not only pilfered another antique motorcycle but also dismantled one within a commercial building on the 400th block of Maple Street in Gypsum. The thief left behind a disassembled $30,000 1956 Harley Davidson Panhead and absconded with a $10,000 1973 Harley Davidson Electra Glide.

The property owner's last visit to the residences was in October of the previous year, and the report was filed by Saline County Deputies on Saturday, May 4th.

An investigation into the multiple antique motorcycle thefts is ongoing, with no suspects identified at present.
