When the alarm starts to go off, the group leave before being able to take anything.

A statement from GhostBikes on Facebook said: “We had an attempted break in attempt in the early hours on Tuesday, the guys came prepared with a chain saw but it seemed were deterred when the alarm came on (you can hear them in one of the videos)
