Richmond RCMP are still looking for two high-end bicycles allegedly stolen during a break and enter last month.

The incident happened at a Richmond sporting goods store in the 11000 block of Bridgeport Road around 3:30 a.m. on May 21. Two suspects entered the store and proceeded to steal nine high-end bicycles. 

Six of the bikes were recovered by officers from the Richmond RCMP property crime unit on May 26. A seventh bike was turned over to police after the purchaser discovered it had been stolen.

“The nine bicycles stolen are extremely valuable and the recovery of these six is significant to the sports store owner but our work isn’t over,” says Sgt. Simon Lee, NCO in charge of targeted enforcement units. “Our investigators remain focused and are working hard to recover the remaining bikes.”

A male suspect was arrested and released.

The two outstanding bicycles are described as:

• Custom built 2020 Rocky Mountain C50 29” Medium with DT Swiss FR560 rims with 240 hub (Serial Number RMVCTFHS9M0709)

• 2020 Rocky Mountain Slayer C70 29” Medium

“It’s possible these bicycles have been sold to an unsuspecting buyer,” says Cpl. Adriana O’Malley, Richmond RCMP media relations officer. “These bicycles are not run-of-the-mill bikes. We are asking anyone who may have purchased or have any knowledge about these bikes to contact us.”

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or who has information regarding this file, is asked to call Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212 and quote file number 2021-13560.
