FORT LAUDERDALE (CBS4) – Police are looking for a group of motorcycle thieves who apparently broke into two motorcycle shops early Monday morning.

The manager of Broward Motorsports Fort Lauderdale says five dirt bikes were taken. Police say it appears the same suspects broke into Dos Reis in Northwest-Dade and stole similar dirt bikes. Both crimes were caught on camera.

Phil Bohi, general manager of Broward Motorsports Fort Lauderdale says he saw the video from Dos Reis.
“It’s obvious it’s the same people they’re wearing the same clothes they’re acting in the same mannerisms,” he said.
Video shows the suspects staking out the Fort Lauderdale store and motioning a pickup truck toward the garage door. The truck slams into the door and the suspects slip in, head straight for the back corner, and leave with bikes.
Bohi says he’s sure the suspects have been inside the store before.
“There’s no way anyone could navigate through this dealership – through the maze, the labyrinth of motorcycles, ATVs, that they did and then bring them back out without just creating an absolute ruckus if they hadn’t planned it. It’s almost like they walked it off prior to doing it,” he said.
Bohi says police arrested one suspect and recovered one of his dirt bikes. He said one suspect also dropped the dirt bike near the store, so he got that bike back as well, but he says there are a lot of suspects still out there. and he wants other businesses to be aware.
“I don’t think we’ve seen the end of it and I don’t think we know the true scope of it yet,” he said.
Anyone with information is urged to call Broward Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS.
