*Dirt bikes taken from Winchester dealership

By Alex Bridges -- abridges@nvdaily.com

WINCHESTER -- Authorities say several suspects broke into a motorcycle dealership and stole four motorbikes earlier this week.

Deputies responded to Shenandoah Honda, 2098 Berryville Pike, shortly before 2 a.m. for an alarm, according to a press release from the Frederick County Sheriff's Office. Suspects took four, red and white, 2009 Honda CRF150R off-road dirt bikes, the release states. Three bikes had damaged brake levers.

Suspects, at least five according to the release, forced entry into the business through the rear walls and fences. Video footage shows suspects the outside of the building late Sunday night, then inside, slouching down inside and walking toward the bikes which they took to a back room, the release states. A suspect is seen by a cash register at 1:22 a.m. Monday.

The suspects avoided motion detectors; dispatchers heard no reports of alarms at the time, the release states.

Suspects all appear to have on gloves and each wore: a black hooded jacket, jeans and dark-colored shoes with white bottoms; a red hooded jacket, jeans and dark shoes; a brown leather jacket, white cloth around the neck, jeans and dark shoes; a blue jack and tan pants; and a blue jacket and light jeans.

Anyone with information on the incident, or have experienced similar incidents, may call investigator Holmes Smoke, 303-3577, or the sheriff's office at 662-6162.
