Florida Police Bring down Motorcycle Theft Ring that smuggled bikes to the Caribbean


Police in South Florida have arrested members of a motorcycle theft ring that would smuggle the stolen motorcycles to the Caribbean. Motorcycles and the Caribbean, what incident does that remind us of? Why does the story of the death of Robert Wayne Benson come to mind when reading of such criminal endeavors. Although there is probably no connection just seems like an interesting topic and food for thought.

Fredrick Woods was a gifted mechanic who investigators said used his knowledge of motorcycles for all the wrong reasons, landing him and five others in jail Tuesday on charges they were part of a South Florida theft ring that smuggled hundreds of bikes to the Caribbean.

Woods had connections with thieves throughout the region to steal and sell the bikes, and he built devices that bypassed the ignitions on many motorcycle models, helping the thieves snatch the bikes in seconds, Broward Sheriff Ken Jenne said.
