O’FALLON, Ill. – Thieves swiped five motorcycles from a nearby commercial enterprise early Friday morning. At the Metro East Motorsports in O’Fallon, a rock or large concrete piece becomes thrown through a window. Five thieves wearing black clothing and bike helmets ran into the showroom, grabbed five new Kawasaki motorcycles, and made their way out thru a garage door. Police said the suspects rode 4 of the motorcycles from the scene and loaded the fifth right into a minivan. Witnesses informed police they noticed the motorcycles rushing alongside westbound I-sixty-four near Illinois Route 111 quickly after the theft.
Bret Boyd, the proprietor of Metro East Motorsports, says the thieves knew where the keys were locked up and that they had been inside and out within minutes. “We maintain the keys close by the bikes, and we wondered why they knew where the keys had been. However, it turned into pretty short,” said Boyd. “They grabbed the keys and placed the keys inside the ignition. Four of the five motorcycles ran, and one did now not. They filled the heaviest bike we had inside a van again.” Three of the stolen motorcycles were green, one turned into green and black, and one was silver, valued together around $ forty-five 000. Anyone with statistics is requested to touch the O’Fallon, Illinois police.
