Mandurah Scooters targeted in brazen overnight raid

A daring duo has left a trail of destruction after targeting a Mandurah business on Tuesday.

Two men broke into Mandurah Scooters on Hampton Street in Greenfields just before 1am.

On CCTV, the pair can be seen smashing their way into an office with an axe before attempting to reverse the company car through a roller door but failed when they hit metal bollards.

Mandurah Scooters business owner James Hall said it was “disgusting” and even offered a cash reward for information about the incident.

“The alarms went off. We came down here, and people were still at the front. They caused a few issues,” Mr Hall said.

“We are totally disgusted in the outcome of Mandurah.

“People should go and get a job. I’ve worked hard all my life

“There’s a $1,000 reward for information leading to a positive outcome.”

Two men target Mandurah Scooters CCTV.

After reviewing the CCTV, Mr Hall said he believes the raid was a targeted attack.

“They stole a motorbike out of the showroom then dumped it on the corner,” Mr Hall said.

“They didn’t take any tooling. They took a petty cash tin and a laptop.”

The office was left ransacked, multiple doors were damaged, and the company ute was left with a broken window and rear damage.

At the scene on Tuesday, Mr Hall said the police response was great. However, the damage bill was expected to be in the thousands.

“There’s probably between $15,000 to $20,000 worth of damage,” Mr Hall said.

“Police were absolutely fantastic. We’re waiting for forensics to finish their investigations.”

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
