A second motorcycle that was stolen from a garage in the 600 block of Baylor Street was recovered this past Saturday. A member of the Los Angeles Police Department Beach Detail, Officer Bermudez and his partner, received a call about a motorcycle that was found on the Palisades Bluffs off the Grenola Street loop.
“We are recovering the motorcycle that was stolen from Baylor Street on September 28,” Bermudez said.
Two motorcycles had been taken from the home on Baylor. The first was discovered when Palisades youth sleuths saw a person working on a motorcycle near their apartment building on September 30 and alerted the police.
