Nanaimo RCMP hope public can identify alleged bicycle thieves

Man and woman caught on VIU Nanaimo campus surveillance footage stealing a bicycle.

Police in Nanaimo hope the public can help identify two people allegedly involved in the theft of a bicycle.

According to police, a bike was stolen from Vancouver Island University’s Nanaimo campus at about 1:50 a.m. on Nov. 29.

Video surveillance footage captured images of a man and a woman believed to be responsible for the theft. The man uses bolt cutters to remove the lock on a yellow Peugeot mountain bike. The man and woman then walk away with the bike, which had a flat tire.

The woman is white, about 30 years old with shoulder length blonde hair. She was wearing tan colour lace-up boots and a cream colour button up sweater and was also carrying a tan colour backpack.

The male suspect is also white, about 25 to 30 years old, with a goatee and moustache. He was carrying a purple umbrella and was possibly wearing a red hat.

Anyone who can identify these individuals is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 and quote file # 2018-45189. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com or call 1-800-222-8477.
