Spokane police search for mysterious motorcyclist

Wed., May 20, 2009, 1:01 p.m.

A motorcyclist eluded police at least twice recently, and officers are asking for help identifying a suspect.

Police have had to end two pursuits because they were too dangerous, and several citizens have reported the same man driving recklessly in north Spokane neighborhoods, police said Wednesday.

The motorcyclist is described as a larger-build, white man who wears a blue and white or black and white multi-patterned helmet, police said.

The motorcycle is a lime green Kawasaki VX12 Ninja with two round taillights and a shortened muffler that makes the bike very loud. It has no license plate, according to police.

“As the weather gets warmer and school lets out, more and more people will be on foot in the neighborhoods where the suspect has been seen,” police said in a news release. “The potential for him to cause severe injuries or death due to his actions will become increased.”

Anyone with information on the motorcyclist is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (509) 327-5111. If you see him in your neighborhood, police recommend calling 911.
