Nanaimo police recover stolen bikes

The owner of three stolen high-end mountain bikes ended his week on a high note after police called to inform him all three bikes had been recovered.

The Nanaimo RMCP Street Crimes Unit hit the streets in search of the bikes when their owner reported them stolen on April 8 and handed pictures of the bikes along with their serial numbers and detailed descriptions to police, which helped investigators track down, recover and ultimately hand the bikes back to their owner Friday morning.

“This unit knows who is involved in thefts and they were confident if they knocked on enough doors and shook enough trees they would find the bikes,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. “Sure enough, their efforts were rewarded [Thursday] night with the recovery of all three.”

No charges were laid, but investigators have not ruled out that charges could be recommended.
