Good News from the New Haven Independent: “Ghost” Trail Leads To Dirt Bikers

A woman called the cops after seeing a dirt biker tear down Norton Street. Carlos Conceicao and Josh Kyle turned the corner wondering if the call was about the biker they’d been looking for. They had a “ghost” of an idea of how to catch him—on foot.

The idea: collect information to produce “ghost warrants.” And show that cops without wheels can have the last laugh.

The two walking cops (pictured above, conferring with Officer Renee Forte about the phoned-in report) from New Haven’s Dwight and West River neighborhoods know the names and addresses of the bikers they’ve started stalking this month. They know what the bikers look like. On this day, they’re hoping the phoned-in report might lead them to a man with braided dreads; he has burned enough rubber all over town to emerge as New Haven’s most-wanted outlaw dirt biker in the early stages of the warm weather mayhem season.

The riders speed around on illegal motorized bikes, pop wheelies in the street, weave around cars and pedestrians, drive against traffic, run lights, scare people, and laugh at walking-beat cops like Conceicao and Kyle along the way. They laugh because those cops can’t catch them.

Yet.

When you see a motorbike rider doing something dangerous in Fair Haven call Sgt Zona 203.946.7377. What is most helpful is information about places where the motorbikes are parked or stored, followed by descriptions of the motorbike and drive. If you happen to see a licence plate number even better, You do not need to identify yourself to make a report.
