Windsor police have arrested a man after officers observed a rare motorcycle previously reported stolen.
Patrol officers were in the area of Church Street and Erie Street West at around 12:30 pm on Wednesday when they noticed a rare, red and black motorcycle.
A subsequent check showed that the motorcycle was stolen.
The officers watched the motorcycle driver pull into a house in the area of Church and Pine Streets. However, when they tried to arrest the driver, he tried to run. Officers caught him and arrested the man without incident.
Constable Bianca Jackson said officers recovered a knife, brass knuckles, and illicit drugs after the arrest.
The 43-year-old man has been charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000 and three counts of possession of a controlled substance for trafficking. He also faces two counts of possession of a prohibited weapon, three counts of breaching a release order, and four counts of breaching a firearms prohibition order.
The charges have not been proven in court.
