So many motorcycles in Clarksville, Tennessee have been reported stolen that police have formed a task force to fight the problem. Clarksville Police Chief Al Ansley says officers are being "proactive and reactive" in their investigation of the spike in thefts. He says motorcycle owners should take precautions and urges anyone who sees suspicious activity to report it. The Clarksville Leaf-Chronicle reports there have been 59 motorcycles stolen in the city in the past year with a combined value of more than $400,000.

A Clarksville man is detained in Montgomery County Jail on false report charges after he allegedly posted a Craigslist ad for a baby for sale. Last week, a concerned citizen called Clarksville Police about the ad, which listed the baby for sale for $850. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Detective Debra Kolofsky investigated 24 year old Jacob Marshall for posting the ad. Officials determined the baby was not known to Marshall and he had only posted the ad to see what kind of response he would get. Marshall’s bond is set at $1,000.
