Bicycle thieves prowling Campbell River’s Beaver Lodge lands

The Campbell River RCMP are saying bicycle thefts continue to be a problem in the city.

Most of these bikes are being stolen from yards or bike racks where they have been left either unattended or unlocked.

However, there have been two recent cases in the Beaver Lodge lands where the owners left their bikes on the trails for just a moment or two.

With this in mind, RCMP Const. Maury Tyre is reminding everyone to be extra vigilant, especially along the Beaver Lodge trails.

“Unfortunately, this means someone is wandering the Beaver Lodge lands hoping to locate unattended bicycles and take off with them,” Tyre said. “All we can tell people is don’t take your eyes off your belongings. If it’s not locked or bolted down it can be gone in seconds. 

He added that if you value your things, you should always keep your serial numbers.

“Most of our stolen bicycle reports have no serial numbers and it makes it very difficult to verify the ownership of a recovered bicycle.”
