A rash of recent bicycle thefts has the Revelstoke RCMP warning people to keep their bikes and other valuables locked up.
Nine bicycles have been stolen in Revelstoke so far in June, bringing the total this year to 24, reported Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen. That compares to 16 bike thefts at this time last year.
“Most bicycles have been stolen from front porches or yards and most have been left insecure,” she said in a news release.
The thefts include several high-end mountain bikes.
“Police would like to remind residences to ensure that all your valuables are properly secured when not in use,” said Olsen.
