Burglars vandalized bike stores in California, made away with several bikes - Shopping News

United States — A bike shop owner, Louie Ibarra on Thursday morning found his front window smashed and several of his top-of-the-line mountain bikes worth thousands of dollars each, gone.

“Whoever did this knew what they were doing," said Ibarra. “They targeted the premium inventory. Some of these bikes get up to $8,000 or $9,000 each.”

The break-in is just another chapter of problems that Ibarra has had at his bike shops around San Diego. About a month ago, thieves smashed the windows of the Del Sur Bike Shop and helped themselves to several bikes valued together in the tens of thousands.

Little over three weeks ago, in front of the Ramona Bike Shop, Ibarra returned to find his brand-new shop truck vandalized with swastikas and racist graffiti.

“The doors were gouged, the hood was gouged, all of the windows were smashed, the tires were slashed and they did over $20,000 in damages," said Ibarra.

“The bikes are parted," said Ibarra. "They are switched around. Different components are moved around. It’s just really challenging to ever catch anyone."... cbs8.com
