The Highway Patrol Group-9 continues its investigation on the shipment of suspected 51 stolen motorcycles intercepted at the local wharf on December 20, 2010.

The assorted motorcycles inside a containerized van came from Manila aboard a commercial vessel.

HPG-9 case investigator PO3 Wilfredo Ator reported to HPG-9 Chief Sr. Supt. Romeo R. Uy, who is attending a command conference in Camp Crame, that the total number of motorcycles intercepted was 51 and not 52 as earlier reported.

Ator said that experts from the Police Regional Office-9 Crime Laboratory have already conducted a macro-itching and physical examination on 33 of the 51 motorcycles. The results are: Chassis and engine numbers of 13 of the 51 motorcycles are tampered. Out of the 33 motorcycles, three are listed in the Vehicles Information Management System( VIMS ), the computer link of the Highway Patrol Group  nationwide.

Ator said that all of the 51 motorcycles are from Luzon.  On the part of the 13 tampered chassis and engine numbers, HPG 9 will have a long process of investigation to determine who are the real registered owners of the 13 motorcycles. -- Allen Abastillas
