Springfield Township Police are investigating a break-in at a local ATV and motorcyle dealer in which tens of thousands of dollars in inventory was apparently stolen.
In a post on the department’s Crimewatch page Friday, police said that during the overnight or early morning hours of April 4 and 5, Scott Powersports on Rt. 309 south of Coopersburg was broken into and “multiple ATV-style motorcycles were stolen.”
Police said Kawasaki (green and white), Yamaha (blue and white) and KTM (orange, black and white) motorcycles were all removed from the business and loaded into an unknown type of vehicle or trailer by a thief or thieves.
In a post on the business’s Facebook page Friday, someone from Scott Powersports said 11 new 2019 models were stolen in the burglary: CRF110, CRF450, KLX110, KLX100, KX450, KX65, KX85, 300 XC, 450 EXC-F Six Days, 500 EXC-F and YZ125 models.
Another post said the business was closed Friday because of “unforeseen circumstances.”
The business also referred to other break-ins in its Facebook post about the burglary, which as of 5:15 p.m. had been shared more than 1,200 times. The post stated that “like many other dealers, Scott Powersports is the latest victim of break-in entry.”
A photo of the break-in scene shared by the Scott Powersports page shows a shattered showroom window with shards of glass littering the showroom floor.
Police said in their Crimewatch post that more information is still coming into the department, and that the “post will be updated when appropriate.”
