Police Recover Multiple Stolen Bikes Over Long Weekend
On September 2, front line officers of the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP learned that 4 youth BMX bikes had been stolen from a residence located in the 1600 block of 30th Ave, Vernon, sometime overnight. Officers conducted extensive foot patrols in and around the city, known to house stolen property, and located the bikes just hours after the report was received.
The relationships that our Officers have within the community allowed them to gather enough Intel for the quick recovery of the bikes and to get them back to their rightful owner before they were altered or modified, says RCMP Cst. Kelly Brett.
The Officers were happy to return the bikes to the youths just prior to the school year commencing.
Further to the investigation, front line officers also recovered two additional mountain bikes that are being returned to the rightful owners. The investigation into the stolen bikes is still in its early stages and is on-going.
