A motorcycle stolen from a Rock Hill custom shop Sunday or early Monday was found on the side of an interstate in Newport, Tenn., Monday morning, according to a police report.
The thief pried open a section of a wall to take the 2003 Harley Davidson from inside C & C Custom Cycles on Main Street, the report states.
As an officer was collecting information about the stolen Harley, the motorcycle’s owner called the garage owner to say police in Newport, Tenn., had found his bike, according to the report.
Police say the motorcycle was worth about $10,000 at the time it was stolen.
It’s unclear whether the Harley was wrecked in Tenn.
Rock Hill officers collected a forensic photo of a boot print from the scene.
The owner of the garage declined to comment on the incident.
