3 sought in Bridesburg bike, minivan thefts
BRIDESBURG - December 5, 2011 (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are investigating a bold act by three thieves that was caught on tape by one of their victims.
Patrick Femia has a surveillance camera positioned over his yard at Orthodox and Salmon streets in the city's Bridesburg section.
At about 5:00 a.m., the camera caught three suspects inspecting the inside of his yard.
Carrying flashlights and bolt cutters, the trio worked to free several dirt bikes and swipe them from Femia's property.
But that's not all they allegedly took.
A couple blocks down, Adam Visconto came outside to find his minivan gone.
"They just got a report two blocks over that three dirt bikes were stolen and they think they used my van as the transportation for the dirt bikes," Visconto said.
Both families are hoping that someone recognizes the suspects in the video and is able to call police with information.
