The Nanaimo RCMP is asking for the public’s help to identify a suspect who allegedly stole an electric bicycle from in front of a north-end business.
The theft happened at approximately 3:30 p.m. on March 30 outside Canadian Tire at Nanaimo North Town Centre. The owner of the bike, which is valued at about $3,000, told police he locked it outside the business and when he returned, just minutes later, it was gone.
Video surveillance showed a male suspect on a BMX bike watching from the parking lot as the owner locked up his bike. Moments later the suspect cut the lock and rode off with it.
Anyone with information about the location of the bike or the suspect is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345 and quote file No. 2020-12028.
