COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Over the weekend, someone stole a Columbus military family's motorcycle for the second time in just six months.  

After having their first sport bike stolen back in July, the Knight family was taking extra precautions to protect their new bike. Unfortunately, their precautions were not enough.

The first incident came after the moved closer to the front of the Grand Reserves. Their bike was parked directly out in front of their house back in July when it was stolen.  

After that they began locking their bike up underneath the stairs underneath a cover.  Despite following all of their precautions, their bike was stolen early Friday morning.

But they weren't the only ones.  

"Until Friday, go to work and try to turn on the bike and it is gone along with our other neighbor's motorcycle, that was gone too," said Jessica Knight.  

Knight believes that these thieves target her husband and her neighbor because of their military background and knowing they worked long hours. 

She believes the thieves either loaded the bikes onto a trailer or into the back of a truck, or dragged them through a path to a different neighborhood.

Either way, she is hopeful that someone with information will come forward and her husband will get one or both of his bikes back.
