A couple from Alberta received some good news this week after their mountain bikes were stolen during their visit to Nanaimo.
Though their bikes had been stolen in July, the RCMP has now stated they have located their bikes, which are being shipped back to them this week. The husband and wife from Blackfolds, Alta., arrived in Nanaimo on the evening of July 31.
After checking into their motel they ensured their bikes were secured to their vehicle with a six-foot cable lock wrapped through each of the bikes' suspension and then secured. When they went to their vehicle in the morning they found the cable cut and the bikes gone. This week, the RCMP informed the couple their bikes had been located.
"The bikes were found at a residence known to police and frequented by persons involved in criminal activity," said Const. Gary O'Brien, spokesman of the Nanaimo RCMP, in a statement.
No one in the residence claimed any knowledge of the bikes, which were seized. No charges were laid.
