KAMLOOPS - More than 10 bike frames were found in a North Shore backyard after a suspect running from police jumped the fence onto the property.
Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says at least one bike was confirmed to be stolen on June 19.
This afternoon, Kamloops RCMP recognized a man riding a bicycle and who was wanted on an outstanding warrant for arrest.
Police began to approach him and the man biked to a residence on Nelson Avenue, police say. He then jumped into the backyard where he was arrested with the help of several officers in several vehicles.
Shelkie says when police got into the backyard, they found 11 old bike frames. No charges have been laid in connection to the bikes found. The suspect did not live at the address, and the residents had no knowledge of the bikes being there.
By-law officers have taken the bikes away, and Shelkie advises anyone who may be missing a bike to call by-law and see if parts of their bike have been found.
Shelkie says the man was wanted on a breach of probation order.
