The suspect rode into a grassy area, hid his bike behind a vehicle and then raced across the street and crawled under a car. As he ran on foot, he tossed off clothing that could have identified him.

The aircraft directed ground units to the hiding suspect, who was taken into custody. The motorcycle was seized and it was discovered that the vehicle ID number had been altered.
