Stolen Husqvarnas

If anyone sees any new Husqvarnas in South Florida selling for CHEAP, pm me or call 866-WMR-RACE please.

My local KTM/Husky dealer in Stuart Florida was broken into Monday night, and all of the new Husqvarnas in the showroom were stolen. The thieves were seen headed south from Martin county on I-95 in a stolen truck, but the Palm Beach county police would not continue the pursuit.
Same thing happened to another Stuart dealer several years ago when the Palm Beach police refused to pick up the chase at the county line.

Thanks in advance for any information.

Hmmm the thieves were in a stolen truck with a buncha stolen motorcycles, I'm guessin they weren't in an F-150 Raptor, doing triple digits tryin to get away. They musta been either in a box truck or pullin a trailer, and how fast could they have been going? Can't figure out why the cops woulda stopped the pursuit, or at least radioed ahead for the next county to pick up the chase.

Way back in The Twentieth Century I got chased by a local cop in an unmarked car, and that d00d did well over 100 chasin my ass down the interstate, then proceeded to chase me thru a neighborhood...he was driving like a madman in a residential area, drifting thru turns, with kids bicycling down the street, walking on the sidewalk, etc. I finally lost him, but the point is, I was just a Random Dipwad havin some fun on my ZX-9, and the cop acted like he was chasing a serial killer! And nowadays they break off the pursuit with a stolen box truck full of stolen motorcycles...this makes no fukkin sense

Sure it does, those guys pay the cops.

That said, I was following totally drunk dude one evening after having dinner. He ran red lights, was on the sidewalk, just completely insane. Called the cops on my cell and followed the guy. Got "sorry, he is out of our jurisdiction now, you will have to call OPD? Then I called them, and saw an OPD car, no joy. Followed the guy home, told them where he was. "Sorry, we can't do anything now" Well, no shit, he is safe.

The cops in this county DID radio ahead, but PB county refused to chase. Like the other time I knew about.

There was a TV news crew that showed up when I was there. I told the shop owner to suggest the same thing during the interview.

There is a video from the security cameras where you can see them ramming the door with a large passenger van, and the huge trailer they towed that Palm Beach county wouldn't chase.

It's not the cops fault. The restrictions on running code are the way they are because of lawyers. Unless there is a life on the line, most won't. All it takes is the perpetrator to run a car off the road while being pursued and the officers involved are fucked. More than likely somebody on command staff called it off.

It's sad but, I do not blame them. Most will write it off as being unfortunate, but take it up with your insurance.

We've got nobody to blame but ourselves for letting worthless liberal judges become appointed and elected. That scenario is a dream come true for a lot of folks out there. The same people who walk in front of you in a parking lot HOPING you will run their fat ass over.
