JAMESTOWN, N.D. - A Jamestown man is charged with felony theft after he allegedly broke into the storage shed of a Harley-Davidson dealership and stole more than $17,000 worth of tools and parts.

The man was charged Tuesday in Cass County District Court with Class B felony theft, according to the Jamestown Sun.

According to court documents, an employee of Stutsman County Harley-Davidson noticed that, between Jan. 14 and Jan. 17, two toolboxes full of tools, four wheels with tires and a motorcycle hoist — about $17,000 worth of property – went missing from the shed.

A Stutsman County Sheriff’s Department deputy discovered that the stolen goods were being stored at a storage unit in Jamestown rented under the suspect’s name.

The complaint says all of the property except the smaller toolboxes was recovered during a search. The deputy also found a motorcycle stolen in Williams County, according to court records.

During an interview with the deputy, the suspect admitted he had the access code to the Fargo storage unit and had taken everything, court records say. He has yet to appear in court.
