A Revelstoke man charged with theft and firearm offences was a no-show for his first court appearance last week.

Bredo Arne Olav Straume faces three charges for firearms offences and two for possession of stolen property.

The charges were laid after police raided a home on Humbert Street on Friday, June 10. There, they found a sawed-off shotgun, high-end mountain bikes, power tools and drug paraphernalia.

Two of the mountain bikes that were recovered belonged to local professional mountain biker Stu Dickson.

Straume was arrested and released on a promise to appear in Revelstoke court. A warrant has been issued for his arrest after he failed to show up last week.
