Alleged bicycle thieves flee capture

The Bonnyville RCMP needs your help to catch two suspicious people who fled during an attempted traffic stop with an interesting amount of bicycles in the back of their truck.

On September 23, a municipal Peace Officer attempted to stop a grey Ford F150 in Bonnyville with upwards of 20 bicycles in the box of the truck however, Sgt. Sarah Parke from the Bonnyville RCMP says it fled.

“The driver of the truck was a female driver and the passenger was an older male,” Sgt. Parke told Lakeland Connect. “Extensive patrols were conducted in the area by the RCMP and the Peace Officer which led them to the 4800 block of 66 Street where the vehicle was parked but no longer with any occupants.”

Sgt. Sarah Parke says checks on the vehicle determined it was stolen, it was recovered and returned to its owner.

The owners of the alleged stolen bikes were not so lucky.

“They were not in the truck at the time of its recovery unfortunately,” Sgt. Sarah Parke told Lakeland Connect.

The matter is still under investigation and anyone with information who either of the occupants of this truck is urged to contact the Bonnyville RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
