ST. LOUIS, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- A Missouri man said his Harley-Davidson motorcycle was stolen and recovered twice in the space of about 24 hours.

David Dickinson, 61, of St. Louis, said the 2006 Dyna Wide Glide was in a trailer in front of his house with a flat tire and someone took the bike and trailer sometime between 3:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Aug. 20, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Tuesday.

Dickinson filed a police report and the motorcycle and trailer were found later in the day behind a stolen truck about 5 miles away.

The trailer was towed to Dickinson's son's house, where he thought it would be more secure, but the motorcycle was gone from the trailer by 4:45 a.m. Aug. 21.

The motorcycle was spotted by a neighbor in the parking lot of an apartment complex about a mile away.

Dickinson said he isn't taking any more chances with the bike.

"I put a lock, chain and a padlock on it," he said.
