On Monday, September 24, 2018, at 4:12 p.m., a motorcycle eluded a Klamath County Sheriff’s deputy in the area of Homedale Road and Foothills Boulevard. The rider, later identified as Glenn Skjerve, Jr., drove recklessly at high speeds through the neighborhood and nearby fields. Skjerve left the motorcycle behind a Kane Street residence and fled on foot; he was later taken into custody by deputies near that location.
The motorcycle is a red and white Honda 150cc dirt bike that matches the description of a recently reported stolen motorcycle. The owner has not yet made confirmation that the recovered motorcycle was the one reported stolen.
Finding Skjerve was a result of cooperation between witnesses, Sheriff’s deputies, Klamath Falls Police officers, and the Oregon State Police troopers. Skjerve was arrested and lodged at the Klamath County Jail.
