PENTICTON - Penticton RCMP would like to return a number of stolen bikes to their owners.
RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says the detachment has 10 bikes, many of them expensive models, recovered over the past three weeks.
Some of the more expensive models include a De vince Troy, a Norco XFR 4 crossover, a Jamis carbon fibre frame, a Gary Fisher Pirana, a Grind BMX, an Avalanche GT and a Specialized Hardrock.
Wrigglesworth says residents wishing to claim one of the bikes will have to provide proof of ownership.
Bikes are stored in the detachment’s garage for a period of time, after which they are donated to the Penticton and District Society for Community Living where members repair and sell them.
