Three men have been arrested recently thanks to the North Vancouver RCMP bait bike program.

On July 22, a local man was taken into custody by North Vancouver Special Response Team after he was caught riding a freshly stolen bait bike. On July 6, a Port Coquitlam man was quickly arrested after he was located riding one of our many bait bikes. In June, a third man was arrested while riding a bait bike he had just stolen. The men were all released with future court dates and charges will soon be forwarded.

There has been a program in North Vancouver since 2014. It was the first of its kind in BC and other RCMP detachments have modeled their programs around North Vancouver’s program, said Cpl. Lauren Kildaw of the Special Response Team. We have a large fleet of bait bikes of every kind ranging from road racing to full suspension downhill bikes.

The bait bikes can be in any or every neighbourhood in North Vancouver and our arrest rate is very high for theft of bait bikes. The bait bikes will be located across North Vancouver all-year-round to target bike thieves and reduce bike theft in North Vancouver.

We encourage bike owners to register their bikes with 529 Garage at Registering a bike with '529 Garage' will increase the ability of the police to return a stolen bike to the proper owner.

If your bike has been stolen, please report the theft to the North Vancouver RCMP at (604) 985-1311.
