'Heartbreaking': Mandurah businesses targeted repeatedly by masked thieves

Mandurah Sportspower has been broken into by masked offenders for the second time in less than a week, in a series of break-ins overnight leaving business owners 'heartbroken'.

Sportspower Mandurah was ramraided on Tuesday, July 2, with two offenders helping themselves to $60,000 worth of items.

Sportspower Mandurah owner Hayden Burbidge said four young offenders on two motorbikes, entered the store by smashing a side window with sledge hammers at about 12.20am this morning.

Mr Burbidge said the offenders were between 10 and 15 years old.

"It's ridiculous to have kids that age, at that time of night going out there and breaking into stores," he said.

"I cried when I saw it. It's so frustrating, but what can we do?"

My dad has just left to go on holiday and he gets a phone call saying it's all happened again.

Mr Burbidge said they stole clothes, socks and jackets totaling about $2500.

"We ended up losing $60,000 in the last burglary, I initially thought it was $20,000, so we don't know the exact cost yet," he said.

Mandurah Tackle World spokesman Thys McCarthy said his father's business was also targeted overnight when two masked offenders ramraided the front door at about 3am, stealing tens of thousands of dollars of high-value fishing equipment.

"They came in with a wheelie bin, ripped the doors off the fishing reel cabinets and started to fill it up," he said.

I cried when I saw it. It's so frustrating, but what can we do?

"They jumped back into their ute and took off.

"It's pretty heartbreaking and upsetting."

Mandurah Tackle World was ramraided earlier this year on March 14, but that time the offenders entered the side door.

"My dad has just left to go on holiday and he gets a phone call saying it's all happened again," he said.

"He's now on his way home."

Mandurah Rebel Sport on Pinjarra Road was also targeted overnight but declined to provide comment.

Mandurah Detectives are conducting investigations.
