Bike Barn in Penticton Robbed

The Bike Barn in Penticton was hit by thieves on Monday morning.

Bike Barn Co-Owner Will Pratt says, he got a call from his alarm company just before four in the morning, and he arrived on scene to find RCMP already investigating.

"When the thieves had broken into the shop, they popped a door that we dont actually use and kicked over a shelving unit that was kind of blocking the door," says Pratt. "So the police came in and were kind of hoping because they had gotten here so fast, that they might catch them in the building, but sadly they were already gone, and they made off with our complete inventory of Oakley sunglasses, and a bike we had down in the repair shop." 

Pratt says they have a video surveillance system and will hopefully be able to provide the RCMP with some footage of the suspects.

He adds, they've also made some security upgrades to the door.
