Bridgeport launches ATV complaint hotline
BRIDGEPORT — The city has created a hotline for residents to report ATV violations on city streets, the mayor announced Friday.
Another seven ATVs and three motorcycles were seized as the city’s police force continues to crack down on the quality of life issue.
As part of an ongoing investigation, police recovered an ATV and two stolen lawnmowers valued at $631, a news release from the office of Mayor Joe Ganim said.
Investigators served a search warrant at a Bridgeport residence that led police to six stolen ATVs, valued at $40,940, police said. Police also found three motorcycles valued at more than $12,000.
Bridgeport police took custody of the recovered property, with the stolen ATVs and lawnmowers currently being held for evidence in the ongoing investigation.
Dirt bikes and quads have been popping up more often throughout the city. Officials said many drivers are reckless and disobey the laws of the road.
Residents can report ATV violations to the hotline at 203-581-5171.
