Victoria, BC – Police are recommending a charge of theft over $5000 after a rare bike was stolen, then recovered, in the 300-block of Catherine Street.
At 12:00 p.m. on August 11th, a plain clothes officer observed a man with what was believed to be a stolen bike. The officer approached the man and quickly determined that the man had stolen the bike moments before being stopped by the officer. Further investigation revealed that the value of the bike was approximately $20,000. Needless to say, the owner was very happy with the officer’s actions.
This is another good reminder that you are able to register your bike with the VicPD Bike Registry program by visiting our website (http://vicpd.ca/bike-registry), stopping by our Esquimalt Division Headquarters located at 500 Park Place or our Main Headquarters located at 850 Caledonia Avenue.
