Filmed: Thieves steal high-end bikes from Pearland Bicycle
This happened Monday night at Pearland Bicycles in the 9300 block of Broadway.
“(Three) thugs broke into our bike shop tonight here in the Silverlake area of Pearland,” said owner Daryl Catching. “Please spread the word to other bike shops to take extra safety precautions.”
A total of 19 bikes were stolen from the store, which Catching valued at at least $ 45,000 in merchandise. Some of the stolen bikes belonged to customers who brought them in for the service, Catching said.
This is at least the third major heist at an area bicycle store in the past month.

Thousands of dollars worth of bicycles were lost in two break-ins in late June at stores in Sugar Land and Missouri City.
Thieves used a crowbar to enter these stores, which is similar to how the Pearland store was broken into. Despite the similarities seen on the separate videos, it is not known whether the break-ins were related.
