Smash and grab break-in at Bicycle Superstore Nunawading

February 12, 2020 By Brad Kellas 2856 Stolen Bikes

Victoria Police would like to speak to the reckless bike thief who used an axe to smash his way into Bicycle Superstore Nunawading on 18 January 2020.

Once inside the male grabbed a Scott Genius and a Giant Trance mountain bike, which he dragged out via the hole in the glass.  Due to the rough handling extraction, it is anticipated the bikes will have extensive scratches.

REWARD OFFERED

PropertyVAULT have posted a $500 reward for any information that assists in the recovery of the two bikes.  

If you have any information about these bikes or the male depicted in the video, please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or post information via the MAKE A REPORT tab attached to each bike.
