Police search for motorcycle thieves
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police are searching for the suspects who stole expensive bikes from a South Florida shop.
The men broke into the Broward Motor Sports in Fort Lauderdale at around 4 a.m. on Sunday. "The hit was made in such a way that this is not their first time," said store General Manager Phil Bohi. "It seems almost that it had been orchestrated."
Surveillance video showed a pickup truck smashing the door of the shop, which allowed the crooks to make their way inside the shop. "They waved the vehicle in. They made one hit. Pulled forward, came back, came again," said Bohi.
Once the men were inside, they grabbed the bikes and loaded them one by one into the truck. "Went to the far northeast corner of the showroom to get the five motorcycles to bring them back to the maze of the showroom," said Bohi. "Come through the maze of the showroom come through the service bay, all in the dark, carrying LED flashlights."
Police are connecting this robbery to one that occurred Monday morning. According to police, it appears that these are the same crooks.
Police arrested one suspect from the Broward Motor Sports robbery and recovered one bike. "I'd love to see them all in custody. I'd love to see them all spending time behind bars," said Bohi. "I'd love to get them all back [the motorcycles] and make some happy customers with those motorcycles instead of happy criminals."
Police believe there will be more arrests.
