In the video three men wearing baseball caps break through a glass window panel and enter the store one by one.

Two men are seen holding white large sacks or bags while the third is empty handed.

The men quickly make their way past the motorcycles to a specific area of the store where they begin loading the bags with helmets and clothing accessories.

In under two minutes two of the men drag the bags filled with expensive goods out of the store while the third man dashes to the other side of the accessories area to grab a few more items before exiting.

Gauteng police spokesperson Captain Mavela Masondo said a case of burglary at business premises was opened for further investigation.

He said no arrests have been made.
