  • An alleged animal violation recently led Lansing police officers to recover three stolen vehicles, a police spokesman said.
    The incident began around 3 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of East Eisenhower Road. Police were attempting serve paperwork related to the alleged animal violation.
    While there, they found a 1995 Chevrolet Camaro that had been reported stolen in Douglas County, Lansing Police Chief Steve Wayman said.
    The person police were looking for was not at the residence. But, officers spoke to someone else at that location.
    During the conversation, police saw a motorcycle inside the residence.
    Wayman said the motorcycle turned out to be a 1979 Harley-Davidson that had been reported stolen from Paola.
    Wayman said police obtained a search warrant for the residence. They were told the person they were looking was at another residence on the same block, and they obtained a search warrant for this property as well.
    At the second residence, police found a 2013 Harley-Davidson motorcycle parked in a shed. The vehicle had been reported stolen in Leavenworth, Wayman said.
    He said police also recovered other items that had been reported stolen.
    "The person we were looking for was not at home," Wayman said.
    He said the case will be forwarded to the Leavenworth County Attorney's Office for possible prosecution.
