Help Us Locate Young Athlete’s Stolen Bicycle, Theft Suspect

 

Date: Saturday, June 5th, 2021 - File: #21-21931

 

Victoria, BC – Patrol officers are asking for your help in locating a competitive athlete’s unique stolen bicycle and the man suspected of stealing it from a downtown hotel yesterday.

 

Staff from a downtown hotel, located in the 700-block of Douglas Street, called officers just before 9 p.m. last night to report that a theft of a bicycle from their locked storage area had occurred at 5:45 p.m. Friday.

 

The bicycle belongs to a young competitive downhill mountain bike athlete, who was staying at the hotel for the competition.

 

The bicycle is a 2017 black Devinci Spartan Carbon XL mountain bike, with black and charcoal lettering on the frame, custom handle bars, a red “Spank” rear rim, Rock-shox front suspension and “Schwalde” Big Barry tires. The bicycle is valued at approximately $10,000. Adding to the misfortune, the custom bicycle was stolen on the young athlete’s birthday. Two photos of the bicycle are below.

 

The suspect was caught on surveillance video. He is described as a Caucasian man, aged between 25 to 35-years old, standing five feet, eleven inches tall with a medium build. He has short brown hair with a receding hairline that is thinning on top. He was wearing a blue jacket, black pants and black shoes and was carrying a black bag at the time of the theft. A photograph of the suspect is below.

 

If you recognize the bicycle or the suspect please call the VicPD Report Desk at (250) 995-7654 extension 1. If you see the suspect and bicycle please call 911.

The thief breaks into a locked bike storage area in a major hotel in broad daylight and they only have one blurry screen cap?

 

And what hotel is in the 700 block of Douglas? That's the Conference Centre and Crystal Garden. When is VicPD going to stop this ridiculous guessing game?

OK, I see. That property must take the record for the most tenuous connection to it's street address.

The Mayor keep referring to Amsterdam with her biking vision, but thing you find in any of the bike capitals in Europe is that everyone rides crappy bikes whenever they go downtown. That way when it is stolen you don't feel that put out.

Victoria, BC – VicPD Traffic collision investigators continue to investigate an attempted vehicle theft which led to a single-vehicle collision in Victoria this morning.

 

At approximately 4:20 a.m. this morning, Patrol officers were called to the 900-block of Pandora Avenue for a report of a single vehicle collision. In addition, officers received information that several bystanders were attempting to restrain a person related to the collision.

 

Officers arrived on scene and learned that a suspect attempted to steal a City of Victoria vehicle in the 900-block of Pandora Avenue. The City of Victoria staff member attempted to intervene in the theft and the vehicle then collided with a street light and a curb in the 900-block of Pandora Avenue.

When officers arrived on scene they arrested the suspect. The suspect and the victim were transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

 

This file remains under investigation.

 

If you have information about this crash and have not yet spoken to officers, please call the VicPD Report Desk at (250) 995-7654 extension 1. To report what you know anonymously, please call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

overnight works crews.  garbage, sidewalk-cleaning, sprinklers (do we have those any more?), street-sweeping, line and curb painting.

The first sounds of the city waking up are usually City of Victoria crews dutifully doing their rounds so the downtown core is ready for workers by 6AM.

 

This could have ended up a real tragedy had the vehicle not come to rest where it did.

You gotta love a downtown core that has "bystanders" at 4:20 AM

Quite likely the guy who was in trouble, or another municipal worker observing the scene, radioed for help. You’d have had a half dozen workers already on shift racing to the scene as police were being called.

From the T-C:

 

tc-259116-web-06092021-crash-jpg.jpg

 

“It was a challenging and dynamic situation for this City of Victoria employee,” MacIntyre said. “It was early morning and he was just trying to do his job and everyone deserves to be safe while doing their job.”

 

The city worker’s injuries are categorized as non-life threatening but they were “significant,” he said. “We’re hoping that the employee is OK.”

 

Once released from hospital, the suspect will remain in police custody, said police.

 

Police are considering charges of dangerous operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm and theft of a vehicle over $5,000.

 

Investigators are also trying to determine if the suspect was impaired. If so, police will consider charges of impaired operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm.

 

Collision analysts and investigators remain in the area.

Hmmm.

 

Two days ago the Mayor issued a PR condemning violence in London, so far today nothing condemning violence against her own employees.
