About $30,000 in merchandise was reportedly stolen from Old Road Harley-Davidson, less than two weeks after the dealership opened its doors.

Shortly after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, general manager Doug Maguire said he received a call from the dealer's alarm company, that the alarm had gone off at the shop located in the Centre Pointe Business Park.

When he arrived on the scene, Maguire said he found someone had smashed a window and made off with a large amount of clothing and possibly expensive motorcycle parts.

"They knew what they were doing," he said Thursday.

The burglary is being handled by detectives from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station, Sgt. Jim Schallert said.

He said Thursday afternoon he was unaware of any leads in the case.

The 24,000-square-foot motorcycle dealership opened for business on June 19, relocating from Van Nuys after being in the same location since 1965.

The last time the business was burgled was around 1985, Maguire said, who was at the Van Nuys location since 2004.

"We were five years in the ghetto (and never burgled)," he said.
