The authorities assured that, in most cases, criminals take advantage of the fact that vehicles are left parked on public roads to take them using the modality known as ‘pulling’.

One of these thefts was recorded on a security camera in the Monterredondo neighborhood. The theft of the motorcycle occurred on the afternoon of this Friday, June 14.

In three minutes the criminals took advantage of the carelessness to commit the crime. In the images you can see when they arrive on a motorcycle and whoever was grilling decides to get off when he observes his objective.

The stolen motorcycle was a Gixxer 150, black, with license plate ROX-75F, which was on the street, a situation that was taken advantage of by the thief.

The subjects made sure that no one was observing them, in a stealthy manner and after two attempts they proceeded to take the motorcycle without anyone stopping them.

“It belonged to an acquaintance who bought it as a result of his work. These bandits take advantage of minutes to steal the motorcycles, leaving one powerless. He was in front of the house and while he was having lunch they committed the robbery,” said a person close to the victim.

Faced with the increase in motorcycle theft, authorities insist on measures such as leaving them parked in authorized parking lots and placing a lock or a GPS tracking system on them as a protection mechanism.

Likewise, after the theft, do not give telephone numbers on social networks since they are used by criminals to demand money in exchange for the return of the vehicle. If you receive an extortion call, you can contact the Police Gaula number: 165.
