Two Motorcycles Worth $1.5 Million Stolen From Bel Air Home

“BEL AIR, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Police are searching for a pair of thieves who broke into a Bel Air home in the middle of the night, tied up the home owner and made off with two valuable motorcycles. That home invasion robbery took place about 4:30 a.m. in the 900 block of Linda Flora Drive. Police said the suspects kicked in the front door and tied up the man, a longtime collector of vintage cars and motorcycles. The man’s wife was able to get away and went to a neighbor’s house to call police. Police said the suspects knew exactly what they were after. They went straight for the two vintage motorcycles valued at more than $1.5 million.

One of the motorcycles was a rare 1914 yellow Cyclone. The other was a 1952 gray and red Kawasaki. The wife said the thieves loaded the motorcycles onto a white van, possibly a rental. “It’s a quiet, residential neighborhood, but we don’t think it was a random break-in,” said neighbor Charles Lesser. “It looks as if whoever did it knew exactly what they were looking for and took it and left.”
