THIEVES avoided cheap bicycles to get at some worth $27,000 from the R and D Speed Shop on Stirling Highway about 4.30am on November 21.
“The offenders have climbed over some children’s bicycles to get to the expensive models,” Senior Sergeant Peter Gilmour said.
The haul comprised a $15,000 Yeti mountain bike and a $12,000 Specialized stump jumper-model bicycle.
BOYS had three attempts at breaking into a Fern Street home between 11.15am and 11.55am on Monday, November 19.
“The front door’s glass panel was smashed, but no access was gained, before the lock to the garden side gate was broken and a rock was thrown through the kitchen window,” Sgt Gilmour said.
The boys were last seen riding bicycles towards the Claremont train station.
They were described as aged 12 to 13, with one wearing jeans, top and baseball cap, all black, and the other a white top and white baseball cap.
“The men attempted to enter through a bedroom window, but the offenders were disturbed by the owners,” Sgt Gilmour said.
One of the burglars was described as about 18, darkskinned, wearing a dark jumper, and his accomplice was about 18, fair-skinned, with a black jumper.
A suspicious red car parked nearby was driven by a dark-skinned woman.
