Another crime of convenience that could have been easily prevented

It took mere moments to steal over $700,000 worth of motorcycles

Halton, Ontario police are investigating after more than $700,000 worth of motorcycles were stolen from a Milton parking lot.

A total of 14 Can-Am Spyder three-wheeled motorcycles were loaded on a trailer and stored at a Trafalgar Road parking lot, north of Derry Road.

At some point between Thursday, June 9 and Saturday, June 11 someone hooked up the trailer and towed it and the motorcycles out of the area, police said.

The motorcycles are valued at more than $40,000 (U.S.) each.

The trailer is described as a silver, open flatbed.

No suspect description is available.

It is unclear at this time how the suspect was able to access the parking lot the motorcycles were being stored in.

This theft could have been easily prevented with a low-cost, highly-effective California Immobilizer security device.

The wheels of the trailer could have been secured with a California Immobilizer Truck and Trailer (TNT) Lock or a Protector Wheel Lock. The trailer couple could have been locked down with a number of coupler locking devices while the motorcycles themselves could have been secured with the Grip.
