Break and enter, Nerang: Investigations have commenced into the break and enter of a motorbike store on Lawrence Drive in Nerang overnight. It is believed a number of men have used a stolen vehicle to smash through the glass doors of the premises around 2.30am. Once they gained entry to the store they removed a number of bikes which appear to have been loaded into a separate vehicle, possibly a white van, parked nearby. The stolen vehicle was located a short time later. The offenders are described as being young Caucasian males and investigations are continuing.

Four teenagers are currently assisting police with their inquiries into the break and enter of the cars.
