'Low lives' steal thousands worth of stock from Canterbury motorcycle store

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

A Canterbury motorcycle store owner is fuming after thousands of dollars worth of stock was stolen from his shop.

Canterbury Honda owner Ted Marris said the “low lives” responsible for the break-in knew what they were doing and what they wanted to take.

The two alleged burglars smashed through the shop’s front door on Main North Rd, Woodend, about 3.45am on Thursday, and made a quick getaway with several expensive items, Marris said.

A red and white Honda CRF250RX motorcross bike, Thor brand helmets, a Honda generator, Honda weedeater and Thor brand clothing were among the items stolen.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 105 and quote file number 200702/4704 or can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
