Thieves pinch bikes worth $300,000
THIEVES in Canberra have stolen 40 expensive bicycles worth about $300,000.
ACT police say the thieves broke into a secure trailer at a business in the industrial suburb of Fyshwick at the weekend.
They removed the 2013 Trek brand bicycles from racks and loaded them into a vehicle in what police believe would have been an hour-long operation.
“The bicycles are high performance models and are not yet available to the public,” police say in a statement.
“Their estimated value is approximately $300,000.”
