Man charged in theft of Kentucky charity bike


Authorities in Louisville, Kent., have charged a man for allegedly stealing the celebrity-signed pink motorcycle that was intended to raise money for breast cancer research.

The pink Harley, bearing signatures of country music celebs including Taylor Swift and Dolly Parton, was stolen in August along with a trailer before they could be auctioned to benefit the local affiliate of Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The bike was recovered in October but the signatures could not be saved.

Now LEX 18 reports Kenneth Cravens, 45, faces charges of receiving stolen property valued over $10,000, first-degree criminal mischief, possession of a handgun by a felon as well as several drug charges involving meth.

Authorities say parts of the bike were removed and changed out.
