New York NY: You can seize them, but you can’t always keep them. That is, if you’re the NYPD.
In July, the department seized 60 high end motorcycles as evidence in a motorcycle and gun trafficking ring. in late August, 7 of those motorcycle were then stolen from a Bronx NYPD parking lot. The clueless cops said the lot was fenced, but not locked and the bikes were stored in a box van with their batteries removed, and the wheels locked to make them harder to steal.
