minimum of $150 to get the vehicle back, which does

not include storage fees.

The LaGrange Police Department is currently cracking down on people illegally operating ou road vehicles

within the streets of La-Grange. Not only are these riders a nuisance to other legal drivers, they are dan – gerous to both themselves

and others.

Police have received nu merous complaints from citizens about people riding dirt bikes lawlessly through the streets of LaGrange, frequently in groups. These riders often drive reckless ly through intersections,

popping wheelies, and even

taunting police to chase them.

Police say these dirt bike riders are usually adults and

are believed to often come

from outside LaGrange, but

are sometimes juveniles, as

with this incident.
