Depending on where he kept the bike, it would be completely possible to NOT know until the following day, or even later, that it had been stolen. Hell, some people keep their bike in a different garage or shed and they don't actually look at it every day of their lives. There had to be something else to tip off the police as to the fact that HE was the one riding the bike during the chase.

He was stupid enough to leave the plate on it...he abandoned it in a public parking garage with cameras...when he showed up to file the report, after about 5 minutes of questioning they had him


Besides...Here is the article complete with pics...

Alvaro Rodriguez, 26, of Santa Clarita, was taken into custody about 9:30 a.m. at the California Highway Patrol's West Valley Area office, said California Highway Patrol officials.

Honestly, did he have it at full throttle? I didn't know that police helicopters could keep up at like 150+ mph

He didn't! I knew it was a R6 from the helicoper vid.... looked like he was only doing about 100mph... helicopers are good for about 140mph. But where they get you is no traffic and line of sight!

I knew our news guy would find it... way to go Bee!
