Avery County deputies still have no suspects in a
Sunday night chase that led to the discovery of a stolen motorcycle.
to Sheriff Kevin Frye, it was a wild night as Avery deputies pursued two
speeding motorcycles to the Burke County line. Frye said the motorcycles had
such a high rate of speed that Avery County had to suspend the chase. Burke
officials took over when the cycles cleared the county line, and while one
cycle was discovered wrecked in Jonas Ridge, the other led law enforcement
through Morganton. The wrecked motorcycle was reported stolen from Newton
earlier this month. No suspects have been identified. Anyone with information
on the identities of the cyclists is encouraged to contact Avery County
Sheriff’s Office at 828-733-2071.
