Jamestown man accused of stealing from Harley-Davidson storage shed
FARGO – A Jamestown man is charged with felony theft after he allegedly broke into the storage shed of a Harley-Davidson store and stole more than $17,000 worth of motorcycle goods.
Kyle Presser, 28, was charged Tuesday in Cass County District Court with Class B felony theft.
According to court documents filed with the charges, an employee of Stutsman County Harley-Davidson, Brad Gebeke, noticed that between Jan. 14 and Jan. 17, many of his belongings were missing from the motorcycle dealer’s storage unit in Fargo.
The items included two toolboxes full of tools, four wheels with tires and a motorcycle hoist – about $17,000 worth of property.
A Stutsman County Sheriff’s Department deputy discovered that the stolen goods were being stored at a storage unit in Jamestown rented under Kyle Presser’s name.
During a court-warranted search, the criminal complaint alleges, all the stolen property was recovered except the smaller toolboxes. The deputy also found a motorcycle stolen in Williams County, according to court records.
During an interview with the deputy, Presser admitted he had the access code to the Fargo storage unit and had taken everything, court records say.
He told the deputy he asked his girlfriend to pawn the smaller toolbox in Fargo, according to court records.
Presser’s first court date has not been set.
