A Tesla’s dashcam captured two thieves allegedly stealing thousands of dollars’ worth of sports and camping gear in high resolution.
Footage shows a man and woman breaking into Martin Green’s apartment in Newstead, Brisbane, at 4am on Thursday morning.
Five bicycles worth $5,000 were allegedly stolen, along with his girlfriend’s ski equipment, worth $1,500, and camping gear they were storing for friends.
Mr Green gave the footage to Queensland Police showing the two men putting the bikes in their car and strapping everything else to the roof.
Two thieves were caught on a Tesla’s dashcam as they raided Martin Green’s garage in Brisbane on Thursday morning.
The thieves, a man and a woman, stole bicycles worth $5,000 and $1,500 worth of ski equipment before fleeing the scene.
Mr Green said Courier mail that he saw a Nissan Qushaqi stop before two people got out and broke into the basement of the apartment.
“We don’t know how they gained initial access, but then they broke into the storage cages and bike racks,” he said.
In the dashcam vision, the man is seen trying to remove a lock from the roll cage with a metal bar and a crowbar.
A reward is being offered to anyone with information that could help victims recover their belongings.
“So my wife would like to offer $1,000 for information leading to the return of the items or the arrest of the thief,” Mr. Green said.
Police confirmed they were aware of the incident and responded to reports of a break-in on Newstead Avenue at 3.20am the same morning.
A police spokesperson said there had been no arrests at this stage.
“In the footage provided to police, we could see them loading the surfboard, skis and other items onto the roof of the car,” they said.
