BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

With the chase and manhunt over and two suspects in jail, the owner of Suzuki City in Biloxi is left to pick up the pieces and get his business back up and running. 

The shattered front door is a stark reminder of what happened at 2:30 in the morning Wednesday. For owner Michael Nasakaitis, this was like reliving a bad dream.  

“Well over the years, we've had about four to five break-ins over the last 30 years. They just love these motorcycles,” Nasakaitis recalled. 

How much do they love them? The store surveillance video clearly shows four men loading up four motocross bikes in the back up a U-Haul truck after breaking down the double front doors by using the bikes as a battering ram. The truck and car then head north of Beauvoir Rd. 

Even though the burglars are gone now, they leave behind a certain feeling for Nasakaitis.  

“I’ve been violated. Like breaking into my house or my business. It hurts just as bad.” 

The thieves only took the smaller bikes, leaving store supplies and the big bikes behind. The good news is the bikes were found, and the process of recovery made better, according to the owner.  

“It makes it easier to get back to business. We don't have the insurance claims to file now and all that because they have recovered the inventory,” said Nasakaitis. 

Despite the extra strong tempered glass, surveillance cameras, and alarm system, for the owner of Suzuki City, there's a feeling of inevitability when it comes to security.  

“That's about the limit right there,” Nasakaitis explained. “No matter what you do, if they want to get in, they'll get in. There's no stopping them.” 

The motorcycles should be returned to the business in the next day or two, after all the evidence has been processed by investigators with the Biloxi Police Department.

Two Louisiana men have been charged in the burglary. Biloxi police said Brandon Macklin Soublet, 25, and Brandon Jeremy Johnson, 30, are charged with resisting arrest, burglary, and receiving stolen property. Their bonds have been set at $150,000.
