Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A man seen pushing an Italia motorcycle Thursday evening ran out of luck when a passing police patrol stopped to help.
The man had apparently ran out of gas and was pushing his moto along a street when the two officers stopped to help him. Noticing his sudden nervous behavior, police began to question the man who insisted the moto was borrowed and had simply run out of gas.
Police ran the plates of the moto and found it was reported stolen at the end of October. The man found in possession of the Italia was a 28-year-old Playa del Carmen waiter originally from Yucatan. He was arrested and taken to the public prosecutor’s office.
