CC-Daring motorcycle heist

IF YOU THINK ONLY BATMAN....
crash through glass door
WOULD GO CRASHING INDOORS ON HIS BATCYCLE...
WELL, HOLY HEIST... LOOK AT THIS...
3 MOTORCYCLES WERE CAPTURED ON A SURVEILLANCE CAMERA AS THEY ROARED UP THE WALKWAY IN A LONDON SHOPPING MALL CALLED BRENT CROSS SHORTLY AFTER THE MALL OPENED THAT DAY. WATCH THE SECURITY GUY BACK OFF AS 6 MEN RIDING TWO TO A BIKE DISMOUNT ARMED WITH AXES AND BASEBALL BATS.
HALF THE MEN GO INTO THE JEWELRY STORE, WHILE ONE OF THE GUYS STANDING GUARD OUTSIDE SMASHES A GLASS BARRIER. SHOPPERS BELOW SCATTER....RICK TREISTER WAS IN A NEARBY STORE...
People running around... the sales assistant seemed to be screaming. She was quite hysterical.
THE MEN INSIDE WERE SHOVELING JEWELRY, CARTIER AND ROLEX WATCHES INTO BAGS.
MOOS STANDUP: This kind of heist is called a smash and grab. And motorcycle smash and grabs aren't all that unusual in London. What's unusual is for it to happen inside a shopping mall.
It was exactly like something out of a james bond film.
It just didn't seem real. It was just like, like a dream.
WHILE THE ROBBERS WERE GRABBING LOOT INSIDE THE STORE, A CLUELESS COUPLE STROLLING BELOW WAS HUSTLED OUT OF THE WALKWAY. IN LESS THAN 2 MINUTES, THE BAD GUYS WERE GETTING BACK ON THEIR BIKES. A SHOPPER ACROSS THE WAY TOOK THIS VIDEO...
RICK TREISTER, A COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHER, WAS ALSO ABLE TO TAKE ONE SHOT AS THE ROBBERS ZOOMED BY...
He was like definitely looking at me and he shouted something.
RICK COULDN'T MAKE OUT WHAT. DURING OUTDOOR SMASH AND GRABS.
BYSTANDERS HAVE TRIED TO KICK THE BIKERS. BUT AT THE MALL...
It didn't occur to me to try and stop them.
THEY LEFT THE WAY THEY CAME. POLICE DISCOVERED THE ABANDONED BIKES A FEW MILES AWAY NEAR A GOLF COURSE, BUT NO ROBBERS. THEY DID DROP SOME OF THEIR BOOTY AS THEY ROARED AWAY....A RETURN WITHOUT A RECEIPT. HEY, GIVE THAT BACK!
