The Victoria Police Department is missing one of their mountain bikes after a man took off with it earlier this morning.

Around 10 a.m., bike officers were attending a social support agency in the 900-block of Pandora Avenue when one of the officers stepped off her bike to attend to a citizen. Moments later, a man jumped on it and rode away.

The black Rocky Mountain Trailhead bike has “Police” on it, a black cloth panier, black Rockshock shocks and had a black helmet attached to the handlebars.

The serial number for the bike is SPRAJ1009557.

Police are asking the public to keep an eye out for both the bike and the suspect, who is described as a Caucasian male, with brown hair and scraggly beard. He was last seen wearing an orange, long sleeved shirt with the sleeves pushed up and a blue logo in the centre, light green or grey cargo pants and dark coloured shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the VicPD non-emergency line at 250-995-7654 or CrimeStoppers.
