Oklahoma City man says he used Apple AirTag to track down stolen motorcycle

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – It’s rare to get your items back after they’ve been stolen, but that was not the case for an Oklahoman. He claims his miniature motorbike was stolen from his porch earlier this week. It was then that he took matters into his own hands.

Whoever stole it broke the locks, turned the ignition on hot, and took all the gas off the bike, but what they didn’t know was that the owner had an Apple AirTag and was tracking his every move.

The owner, Trueon Guevara, located it 40 minutes from his home in a Shawnee house.

“I’m like, ‘I’m here to get my motorcycle back.’ And they actually said, ‘What bike?’ And I said, ‘this motorcycle.’ So it was kind of, you know, a weird experience,” said Trueon Guevara, victim of the stolen miniature motorbike.

Additionally, Trueon says he caught the alleged thieves taking part of the bike.

He says when Shawnee police arrived, they circled the property looking for the bike, while he and his friend knocked on the front door of the house. Then, that was it, two men were dismantling the bike.

“The damage is extensive, so it’s not really for me to let these guys go free,” Guevara said.

Since Trueon lives in Oklahoma City, he tells us that he reported his stolen motorcycle to the Oklahoma City police, but they tell us that they turned this case over to the Shawnee police since the motorcycle was was found there.

“That would be the other agency that handled that part of the investigation,” MSgt said. Dillon Quirk, assistant public information officer, Oklahoma City Police Department.

So far, no arrests have been made, and Shawnee police say that’s because the bike was never reported stolen and entered into the National Crime Database (NCIC).

They also tell us that they sent their findings to the Oklahoma City police.

As for the charges the alleged thieves could potentially face, says Quirk, “Theft of this motor vehicle and/or also receiving and concealing stolen property are charges they could face.”

Going forward, the owner of the mini bike says he is looking to press charges.
