Letter Carrier Kendra Bjork was delivering packages in Traer, IA, recently when she noticed two people behaving suspiciously outside a customer’s residence.

The Postal Service employee didn’t recognize the pair, who appeared to be stealing a motorbike.

Bjork wrote down the make, model and license plate number of the vehicle they used to transport the motorbike as they sped away, then called the police. Her detailed description helped officers locate the stolen motorbike and the suspects, who were arrested.

The investigation led to the discovery of additional stolen items that had been reported missing — many of which were eventually returned to the rightful owners.
