Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — An assault investigation resulted in the recovery of a stolen motorcycle Monday in Sonora.

The Tuolumne County Sheriff´s Department says Deputies George Woodward and Alex Rivera stopped and talked to Kirt Kirkbride, who was sitting in the driver´s seat of a Ford pickup truck.

Reports indicate the truck belonged to a man who was listed as a suspect in an earlier assault.

There was a motorcycle in the back of the truck and when deputies ran the ID number, they found that it was reported stolen from Forest Hill in Placer County.

Deputies arrested Kirkbride and booked him in the county jail for possession of stolen property. The owner of the truck is still being sought for questioning.
