In speaking with the man, our officers learned he had only owned it for 3 days before it was allegedly stolen, says Corporal Adriana O’Malley, Richmond RCMP Media Relations Officer.

He also went on to tell the officers that he never expected to see his bike again so he was absolutely delighted when the call came from police.

Seeing how much this e-bicycle means to the man and how its return impacts him, reminds our officers why we work so hard everyday to serve our community, says Corporal O’Malley, Every time we recover and return an item to its rightful owner it’s a win for the community.

In order to protect the integrity of the on-going and active GIS investigation, specific details about the search warrant will not be provided at this time.
