Catch a Thief: Langston Motorsports Burglarized


The call is out to help catch the thieves who burglarized Langston Motorsports, the Perris, Calif., store owned by champion racer Grant Langston’s father. ON Jan. 9, 2010 at 3:51 a.m. two masked men wearing hoodie sweatshirts smashed through a glass door and grabbed eight bikes, including Grant’s Pro Circuit KX250F championship bikes from 2005 and 2006. Surveillance cameras captured footage of the two thieves running in and out of the store and loading motorcycles into a 14-foot U-Haul truck with a large image of green fish on the side.

Here’s the video:

According to police, the motocross community should keep a sharp lookout for anybody trying to sell these one-off bikes or their nearly unobtainable parts. Anybody with any information should contact the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department a 951-210-1000 using the case number PE100090014. Deputies said if anyone sees the suspects with the bikes, DO NOT try to apprehend them, but to call 911. A $1,000 cash reward is being offered for any information that leads to the recovery of the two championship bikes. Visit the store’s website at for more information.
