E-bikes stolen from Raleigh's store in Santa Monica

Published September 6, 2016

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (BRAIN) — Thieves broke into Raleigh's new company store here early Monday, making off with six bikes. The company and police are asking the public and nearby retailers to be on the lookout for the stolen bikes, which include electric mountain bikes retailing for up to $5,000.

Security cameras show two men outside the store late Sunday night. Police think they cut the store's power then, then came back at about 5:45 a.m. Monday and got in by smashing the front door of the store, said the store's general manager. The store opened late last month.

Six bikes were taken; one was recovered from a nearby alleyway.

The store asked that retailers be on the lookout for the bikes and also for anyone wanting to purchase e-bike chargers (for Bosch, Yamaha and IZIP) and/or keys for the stolen e-bikes. Police also released security camera photos (below) showing two males inside the store and in the alley prior to the break-in.
