Burlington Co. man sentenced to 5 years in prison for role in motorcycle theft ring

Not sure if anyone here was effected, but good to see a little justice. 5 years is a little short in my mind though.

Burlington Co. man sentenced to 5 years in prison for role in motorcycle theft ring

TRENTON - A Willingboro man was sentenced late Friday to state prison for his role in a $500,000 motorcycle theft ring in South Jersey.

The sentence resulted from a joint investigation by the Office of Insurance Fraud Prosecutor and New Jersey State Police in which 23 people were arrested.

Kyle Bunn, 30, of Willingboro, was ordered to serve five years in state prison and to pay $4,008 restitution.

Bunn was also ordered to forfeit his Plymouth Voyager minivan, which was used during the commission of the offense. The sentence was pursuant to Bunn's Jan. 11 guilty plea to conspiracy to receive stolen property, a charge contained in a March 20, 2007 state grand jury indictment.

At the guilty plea hearing, Bunn admitted that from 2003 to 2005, he participated in a criminal enterprise that operated primarily in Atlantic, Burlington and Mercer counties. Bunn admitted that he scouted for motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles to steal, usually as they were parked near the homes of their owners.

After being stolen, some of the vehicles were "retagged" or "stamped" and sold. Retagging or stamping occurs when the vehicle identification number is changed so that the motorcycle or ATV cannot be identified as having been stolen.

The criminal enterprise focused on thefts of Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Honda motorcycles. In total, about 75 stolen motorcycles and ATVs have been recovered as a result of the investigation, with a total value in excess of $500,000.

No, not the minivan! That's harsh!

It must not have been a lucrative business if he owned a Plymouth mini-van!
