Failed Ducati robbery

In Moto, Croydon was targeted by hammer wielding thieves on Tuesday September 4 at 5:30pm. A gang of six youths equipped with three scooters attempted to steal two Ducati 1199’s by trying to walk the machines out in broad daylight.

Chav scum

You just know that the filth will do fuck all to catch these scum. They will get away with it which is why they will carry on . One day hopefully we will have a police service fit for purpose. The only way a conviction would have ever come from this is if one of the shop guys had decked one of the scum and then the police would have arrested the shop guy for assault.

Glad they didn't get away with the bikes. If only they had caught them , maybe the police would entertain this more , but as the evidence on these cameras is sketcy , I doubt much will be done. Heres hoping that they get brought to justice though!

Number plate

I wonder how these thugs thought it could be possible. Number plate in video shows LV08FWC. Get this guy and hopefully catch the rest. Put assault charges as well.

They turn up on scooters to take Brand new bikes from a busy shop....??? any ideas how they would start these bikes and make a clean getaway ? without any interference from shop staff or passers-by ? Jeesus H Christ, lock them up for life cuz they really ain't clever enough to work for a living. Then again lets not waste any more hard working tax payers money on these losers.

They dont ever intend to start them just get their scooter mates to ive them a push to where they want to go and strip the bikes down, I just cannot believe how relaxed they were doing it.

Can't believe they let them ride off, but I guess they weren't actually the staffs' bikes. Would have been nice to see the one on the floor get his head jumped on though.

I love the bit when the staff member pushes the little "see you next Tuesday" off his scooter. I say his but it was probably nicked as well.
