Not THE purple-colored crotch rocket, but A purple-colored crotch rocket, at least.

ENFIELD, Ill. - White County Sheriff's authorities are puzzling out a bizarre situation that was reported Sunday, June 10, in Enfield.

White County Sheriff Doug Maier reports that late Sunday night at approximately 11:09 p.m., Brittany Mathis, 34, called 911 dispatch reporting that someone had just stolen a motorcycle from the back of her residence, which is located on Highway 45.

Mathis told dispatch that two individuals in a dark-colored pickup loaded her motorcycle - described as a "crotch rocket," white in color, with a purple motor and windshield, and missing a seat and throttle grip - in the back of a truck, which then headed north on 45. Mathis advised that she gave chase to the truck, but it continued traveling north toward Fairfield.

She stated she was in the house when the theft occurred, advising that she heard some loud noises and went out the back door just in time to see the suspects leaving in a pickup. The pickup had been backed up to the back porch where the motorcycle was parked.

At that point she noticed damage to her 2003 Dodge van. When authorities inspected it, they found it appeared that someone had taken a sledgehammer and dented the rear driver's side door and driver's door. The hood of the van was also dented severely. Mathis advised that she had just purchased the van three days before, from Steve Talley at S&E Salvage.

The motorcycle, she told authorities, had been purchased in Mt. Vernon, Ill., about two weeks before, and she was unsure of the name of the person she bought it from. She did not have a bill of sale or title for the motorcycle; she did, however, have photos of it, and those were collected up by authorities. The bike had plates on the back; when dispatch ran the plates, though, they were for a different bike.

As Mathis didn't have the vehicle identification number for the bike, she was going to try to recover it.

Anyone with info about the theft or damage is encouraged to call 618-382-5321.
