A pink helmet and child's seat might have been a clue that a 'suspicious' male was stealing bikes in downtown Port Moody.
On Nov. 13 at about 7:30 a.m., Port Moody police patrol officers were dispatched to a report of a suspicious male in the Moody Centre area of Port Moody.
Upon attendance, the male — who is known to police — was located in possession of multiple bicycles as well as other suspected stolen items.
Police are now hoping to reunite the bikes and other equipment with their rightful owners and posted about the items on Twitter.
The stolen items are as follows:
- a black men’s “Townie” cruiser style of bicycle
- a beige women’s “Townie” cruiser style bicycle with a pink baby carrier.
- a black dash camera
- a power tool charger and battery set were also recovered.
“As always, it is really important for folks to lock their vehicles and secure their homes and garages as property offenders are very opportunistic,” stated Const. Sam Zacharias in an email to the Tri-City News.
“It is not uncommon for stolen property to be recovered go unclaimed. We always encourage the public to call us to report property stolen.”
