SPRING, Texas – A Facebook post about the theft of a trailer carrying two Harley-Davidson motorcycles in Spring has gone viral.

One is a 2017 Road Glide. It has two chrome bulldogs on it. The second motorcycle is a 2009 Nightster, silver and black in color, with “Jinx” airbrushed in purple.
“[My husband’s] motorcycle was new. My motorcycle he gave me as a Christmas gift 3 1/2 years ago and it was really really special.”
Q. Are there any clues about a suspect(s)?
“It appears there were three people in the car, according to the video, because you can see someone in the back seat on their cell phone.”
Q. Were they seen, possibly, in the area before the alleged theft?
“They could have spotted it because it was in a tucked away area. They cut the lock, hooked up to it and drove off.”
