On November 5th, 2022 North Vancouver RCMP arrested two suspects for theft in relation to a stolen bike in an under ground parkade in the 100 block of W Esplanade Ave North Vancouver BC.

A victim of a bicycle theft called police after he was able to map the location of his stolen bike using a GPS locator tag. The bike, which had been stolen earlier in the day from an underground parkade, was mapping to the area of 100 block of W Esplanade Ave. The victim attended the parkade and waited for police to arrive.

When officers arrived at the location, they encountered two men associated to a vehicle with several bikes in the back. The victim claimed one of the bikes was his. When officers attempted to arrest the suspects, one of the suspects ran, initiating a foot pursuit. The suspect was arrested a short distance away.

Investigators moved quickly to apprehend the suspects in the investigation, said Cst. Mansoor Sahak of North Vancouver RCMP. The suspects were both known to police and have no fixed addresses. As a result of the investigation, officers were also able to seize several other items of what is believed to be stolen property.

Here are some tips for bike owners
