HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – The owner of a motocross park in Northeast Harris County said he’s fed up suspects continue to steal motocross bikes, four-wheelers and other equipment from his property.

Monday between 2:30 and 4:30 a.m., suspected burglars broke into the garage and stole several pieces of equipment worth more than $50,000.

“It’s tearing me up because I have put my life into this place,” said Danny Erdeljac, the owner of Rio Bravo Motocross Park.

He bought the track in 2008, and rebuilt it to what it looked like back in the ‘70s. Since then, the property not only hosted motocross events, but mud runs, camps, corporate events and more.

“It’s just another robbery to them. To us, it takes away everything we’ve built,” Erdeljac said.

The owner said the suspects moved a ladder that was outside and placed it underneath a vent on the backside of the building.

“They didn’t go through the doors, they unscrewed the big exhaust vent in the back of the building and went through that,” Erdeljac said.

The motion detector sensed the suspects around 2:30 a.m., but the suspects waited and came back around 4:30 a.m. Erdeljac said the suspects used bolt cutters to open the garage and dragged the motorcycles out.
