Visited M&P in Swansea/bikes stolen

Went to MandP today to spend some of my hard earned cash. Chatting to one of the staff he told me the ram raiders where in and out in 6 minutes. They stole Husky and still had the audacity to try and register them so they could start them up. Hope the scum get caught happening to often now. Looks like bollards going in

I'm sorry, not from the UK. Ram Raiders? Some sort of gang, or is that the break-in technique?

It’s a term used we’re thieves use a vehicle (usually a stolen 4x4) to ram into a doorway or roller shutters to gain entry for theft.
Common in the past but most premises upped their security since then but a returning trend. Not the first time M&P has been hit.

In Sweden we use the term Smash´N´Grab for these particular attacks. Very rare these days but we used to have a group called BMW-league or some stupid **** do many thefts like that.

The ram raiders stole a van cut through the main gate then reversed it into the window 3 times until it broke and then loaded the van up with Motorcycles then drove off in 6 minutes
A couple of months ago Freestyle in Newtown were also done. same MO
