SALISBURY, Md. - Police are continuing to investigate the illegal driving of dirt bikes on roadways, after they say three dirt bikes were seized, in Salisbury.

The Salisbury Police Department says that their Safe Streets Team has been investigating multiple reports of unregistered dirt bikes being driven recklessly on area roadways, in August. Police say on Thursday, at 6:00 PM, members of the Safe Streets Team began an operation to find the suspects responsible for the public safety incident.

According to the report, police saw three offenders leave a home in the 700 block of Shiloh Street on  unregistered dirt bikes. Authorities say they were able to follow the suspects and witness them committing multiple traffic violations. When officers attempted to stop the suspects, they reportedly fled at a high speed. The suspects were not followed.

Officers continued to monitor the same home, on Shiloh Street, and later saw the suspects return around 10:45 PM. According to the report, the suspects stored the bikes inside the home. At that time, Salisbury PD says the served a search ans seizure warrant for th home and recovered three dirt bikes that were used in the incident. Authorities report that the suspects fled from the home before the area was secured.

The Salisbury Police Department is investigating the identities of the offenders and charges are pending. Police say that they were assisted by members of the Maryland State Police Gang Enforcement Unit.

47 ABC spoke with a Salisbury Police Department official who said that it is unclear whether or not the suspects are the same individuals in the previous Facebook videos because the bikes are different.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Salisbury Police Department at 410-548-3165.
