raiders use scooters as battering rams

Thieves on scooters used their machines as battering rams to break down the doors at Slocombes Motorcycles in north-west London this week.

Two Yamaha motorcycles – a new YZF-R1M and a blue 2014 big-bang YZF-R1 (model LO14 FCC) – were stolen from the store on Dudden Hill Lane. The break-in took place at 1.34am on Monday, 10 April.

A spokesman for Slocombes said: “They used a blowtorch to cut off the security gates in front of the doors and then proceeded repeatedly to ram the doors on their scooters causing them to eventually cave in.”

An appeal for information has been made on Facebook.
