Turner Cycles has become another victim of Gunnedah’s crime after the Conadilly shop had items stolen Thursday, January 11, at 12:36am.

CCTV footage indicated the three people involved in the offence stole two SHOGUN electric scooters, valued at about $2200 each and one green Merdia 22EOne electric bike valued at about $6600.

The electric bike and one scooter were taken from inside the front of the store and one scooter near the reception desk.

Mr Turner said the CCTV footage showed the perpetrators looking into the store from the outside for four to five minutes and were inside for about 15 seconds. He believes the lock on the front door was jimmied open with minimal damage to the door.

Mr Turner walked inside the building on Thursday morning to see bikes knocked over.

“What has society come to?” Mr Turner asked the Gunnedah Times.

Police are still investigating this incident. People are encouraged to call Gunnedah police, or Crime Stoppers anonymously, with any information that may assist.
