Talk about your fast moving bikes. Last weekend in Pompano Beach, Florida, a gang of thieves busted into the Stradalli Cycle bike shop and made off with 60 bikes, retail value approximately $200,000. Model prices ranged from $2000-$12,000, though these thugs didn’t seem to care about cost, carelessly hucking the bikes into the back of a truck derailleur hangers be damned.
“They knew exactly where they were coming for,” said Tom Stradalli of Stradalli Cycle in a report published on CBSMiami.com, adding that it took four men and a 5-foot crowbar to break get the back door open, which had three separate locks on it. “They ripped up the deadbolt completely out,” added Stradalli.
All this action was captured on surveillance cameras, which can be seen in the stunning video below. Once the door was breached, nine men flooded into the shop, focusing their attention on high dollar bikes. It took just two minutes to grab the bikes and take off.
Stradalli is a direct-to-consumer cycling brand that offers a full array of road and mountain bikes.
