Thieves caught on camera stealing motorcycle in Miami

MIAMI (WSVN) - Two men were caught on surveillance video footage stealing a motorcycle out of a parking garage in Miami.

Detectives are searching for the pair of thieves who stole the 2016 Kawasaki motorcycle at an apartment building along Southwest First Street and Sixth Avenue, around 9 p.m. on July 11.

The motorcycle is said to be worth around $18,000.

“It’s a hard pill to swallow. I was super mad because [it’s] something that you work so hard to get the money,” said victim Reinier Sanchez.

Sanchez said he was out of town during the theft and that he thought he had left his motorcycle in a secure area.

He said the thieves jumped the gate of the parking garage and cut the locks on his bike.

“Kryptonite chain — super hard chain to cut,” he said.

In the surveillance video, one of the men hops over the gate before letting the other subject in.

The men are then seen in the video footage going straight for the motorcycle before wheeling it out through the front of the building.

“They came prepared. They removed the GPS unit on the bike, so they kind of knew me or knew the place where I live,” said Sanchez. “They cut that out, they removed the GPS and they walked away. It’s so sad.”

Sanchez now hopes someone will recognize the thieves and help police identify them.

“They will get caught, and they will pay the price,” he said.

One of the subjects is described to be a clean-shaven, white male between 20 to 25 years old. He is said to stand about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and weighs approximately 140 to 180 pounds.

The other crook is described as a white male between 20 to 25 years old. He is said to be about 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall and also weighs around 140 to 180 pounds.

If you have any information on this theft, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
