Similarly, on April 21, Chase RCMP responded to a report of a break and enter at the Pedal Bros. Cycle Shop on Okanagan Avenue in Chase.

“The suspect broke into the business sometime between April 19 and 21 and various items were stolen, including a three-wheeled pedal bike,” reports Kennedy. No suspects were identified.

On April 20, it was a motorized bike that had been stolen.

Chase RCMP went to the 2100 block of Evans Road in Celista in an attempt to locate a man wanted on a warrant.

There officers noticed a motorcycle in the driveway with an incorrect plate attached.

“A check of the motorcycle showed it to be stolen out of Ridge Meadows. There was insufficient evidence to link the motorcycle to the residents of the property. The motorcycle was recovered and returned to its owner,” reports Sgt. Kennedy.
