Arrest made following traffic stop on July 12

A traffic stop by Nanaimo police has led to the recovery of a missing e-bike.

According to a Nanaimo RCMP press release, on July 12 at approximately 7:50 p.m., an officer pulled over a Chevrolet Cavalier travelling 90 kilometres per hour on Nicol Street, where the posted speed limit is 50km/h.

During the traffic stop, the vehicle was identified as being connected to an incident on July 11 in which a stolen e-bike was recovered, the release notes.

Police arrested the driver for allegedly being in possession of the stolen e-bike. They also issued the driver a ticket for excessive speed and impounded the Cavalier for seven days.
