A 28-year-old Ann Arbor woman is being charged with Receiving and Concealing a Stolen Motorcycle, police said.
Ferndale Police recently arrested an Ann Arbor woman who was reportedly driving a stolen motorcycle.
Around 11:50 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 5, a Ferndale officer made a traffic stop on a motorcycle and found the woman rider was on a stolen bike, according to a press release from Ferndale Police.
The officer first noticed the motorcycle stopped at Pinecrest and Marshall for a traffic signal. When the light turned green, the bike began southbound but was stalled out, the report states. The driver restarted it and drove southbound travelling about 48 miles per hour in a 30-mile-per-hour zone.
