Victoria Police would like to speak to the reckless bike thief who used an axe to smash his way into Bicycle Superstore Nunawading on 18 January 2020.
Once inside the male grabbed a Scott Genius and a Giant Trance mountain bike, which he dragged out via the hole in the glass. Due to the rough handling extraction, it is anticipated the bikes will have extensive scratches.
PropertyVAULT have posted a $500 reward for any information that assists in the recovery of the two bikes.
If you have any information about these bikes or the male depicted in the video, please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or post information via the MAKE A REPORT tab attached to each bike.

Bike theft is largely driven by the lucrative black market trade, aided by lacking bike identification, insufficient recording, and the inability for the public prior to BikeVAULT to check if a second-hand bike is stolen when advertised for sale.
