ATV, two dirt bikes stolen over a year ago from Jackson have been found
All hope was not lost for the owner of an ATV and two dirt bikes who reported the theft in Jackson in August of 2018, as all of his belongings have been located more than a year later in Camden.
Jackson Police Detectives said they were following up on information they received Wednesday regarding the theft and were able to recover a motorcycle which had been reported stolen and charge the suspect who possessed it.
In August 2018, a Jackson resident reported that an All Terrain Vehicle and two dirtbikes were stolen from his residence.
Recently, a video was forwarded to detectives which showed one of the stolen motorcycles, which was valued in excess of $4,000.00, being operated by a juvenile in Camden.
The victim was able to identify the dirtbike by several customized and aftermarket modifications which had been made to the bike and also by minor but distinctive damage it had.
Detectives viewing the video were able to identify the suspect and link the location to the suspect’s address in Camden.
A search warrant was applied for and obtained to search the residence for the dirtbike and on Thursday Jackson Detectives coordinated with Camden County Detectives and conducted a search of the suspect’s Garfield Avenue residence in Camden.
During the search, the motorcycle belonging to the Jackson resident was recovered with what was determined to be a fictitious VIN number on it.
The suspect, Dilson Vasquez, 29 of Camden, was charged with third degree receiving stolen property and third degree tampering with a VIN.
Vasquez was issued a summons pending a court appearance.
Police also recovered 4 jet skis, a jet ski trailer, 2 dirt bikes and a dirt bike frame at the residence which were determined to have been stolen from other jurisdictions.
Several of these items were discovered to have fictitious VIN numbers on them also.
Camden County Police seized those items and were continuing the investigation, additional charges are pending.
