Victoria police track down stolen bicycles

Three stolen bikes worth thousands of dollars were recovered by Victoria Police Department, thanks to quick sleuth work on the street.

The theft occurred from an underground parkade sometime late Friday night or early Saturday morning in the 600-block of Superior St.

On Sunday, VicPD officers tracked a well-known person of interest to a house in the 1600-block of Belmont Ave. and found two of the missing bicycles.

Police then tracked the Victoria man to a second residence in the 1800-block of Adanac St. in Saanich and found the third bike.

"We would not have been able to bring this case to a swift conclusion without the forethought of the victims and local bicycle merchants who thought ahead to record serial numbers and to store them in a safe place," said Bowen Osoko, VicPD spokesman.
