Perez said that when he returned to check on his motorcycle, it was nowhere to be found.

In the wee hours of New Year’s Day, a Meilun Ninja motorcycle was stolen from 21-year-old Emil Leiva as he socialized inside a night club, this time in Orange Walk town. Leiva reported that around 12:30 a.m., he parked his motorcycle in an empty lot near HI Five Night Club and when he went to check on it at 3:00 a.m., it had already been stolen.

Another Meilun motorcycle was stolen in Orange Walk town, less than two hours later that same morning, from behind Bouchy’s Night Club where 21-year-old Austin Rodriguez parked it.
