Thieves smash way into Warwick motorbike store

UPDATE: Thieves have smashed through the window of a Warwick motorcycle store, stealing two motorbikes and motorcycle clothing.

It's believed the theft at Top Two Motorcycles occurred sometime between 5.45pm on Tuesday and 6am Wednesday.

Warwick police Sergeant Lisa Self said police were reviewing CCTV footage and making further enquiries.

"They've broken the front plate glass windows and stolen two motorcycles and some motorcycle clothing," she said.

The stolen motorbikes are a yellow and white Yamaha YZF 450 quad bike and a blue Yamaha Pee Wee 50.

Sgt Self said police didn't expect the stolen motorbikes to be driven on the road.
