A motorcycle shop in Windham, New Hampshire, is asking for the public's help as police investigate a New Year's Day break-in at the store during which at least five masked men stole several dirt bikes and helmets.
Windham police were alerted to the brazen heist just before 4:30 a.m. at Naults Powersports on Range Road when an alarm went off at that location. According to police, the initial officer arrived seconds after receiving the alarm and reported a broken window to the front of the building.
Surveillance video shared by the business shows five males wearing masks and hoods walk up to the building's front entrance with two large rocks. All of them begin smashing the window with the rocks until a hole is made in the glass. Three of the suspects proceeded to enter the store while the other two went to the building's northern entrance.
About six minutes later, five dirt bikes were wheeled out of the building's northern entrance and taken south on Range Road out of the view of the surveillance video.
The latest news from around the state
Interior security footage shows the thieves enter the store with one of them carrying bolt cutters. That suspect immediately cut cables securing several dirt bikes together. Once freed, the motorcycles were wheeled out of the building. Several other bikes were wheeled from the second floor down to the first and then out the building, as well. One of the suspects also took five helmets from the second-floor showroom.
All suspects initially left the building, but one returned a minute later, going through the hole in the window to grab a pair of yellow bolt cutters that had been left on the floor.
According to police, five dirt bikes were stolen that are worth more than $50,000, and there were a total of six suspects involved.
All of the suspects appeared to be males ranging in age from late teens to early 20s, police said.
Naults Powersports shared several posts on Facebook Saturday asking for the public's help in locating those involved.
"Does anyone know who these thieves are?!?!," the post read, sharing surveillance video from the incident. "We need the public's help in identifying these people. They cannot keep getting away with [this]!"
Naults Powersports says it is offering a $10,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the thieves involved.
According to the business, the masked men stole a 2021 KX 85, a 2022 KX 250, two 2022 CRF 450 RS, and four helmets.
Investigators are continuing to review surveillance footage from surrounding businesses for more leads and are asking residents in the Range Road neighborhood to check any exterior surveillance footage at the time of the incident for any suspicious cars or people.
Anyone with information is asked to the contact Detective Sgt. Jessica Flynn at the Windham Police Department.
