Forced Entry at Unlimited Cycle Center
State police reported on August 30 that an unknown actor forced entry into Unlimited Cycle Center in Snyder Township, Tyrone, and entered the store showroom, attempting to remove four separate motorcycles (super bikes) by driving them through the show room to the rear of the store.
According to police, the actor apparently didn’t know how to drive a super bike, or it was too powerful for the actor to handle, and crashed three of the motorcycles inside the building during the attempts to remove them. The actor finally got one of the super bikes out of the rear door of the building and parked it along Rossman Road, approximately 400 feet from the building, and then fled on foot.
The alarm sounded to the building and a video recording system recorded all the action while it transpired.
The actor also injured himself and left blood at the scene. Blood evidence was collected by police and is being processed for DNA comparison. As soon as the video is processed, a photo of the actor should be released to the press to help identify the actor.
The investigation is pending. Anybody with information about this crime is asked to contact Pennsylvania State Police at Hollidaysburg. If somebody happens to know someone who has a possible right hand injury and can’t explain how it happened, that person could possibly be a suspect. This person also can’t know how to drive a motorcycle.
