In late March, a bicycle belonging to an 11-year-old child was stolen in Burnaby and reported to the Burnaby RCMP. Earlier this week, a friend of the family recognized the distinctive bicycle in downtown Vancouver and advised police.

A photo of the stolen bike was distributed to patrol officers. Officers were in a downtown social housing building today on an unrelated matter when they recognized the bike in the lobby.

The bike was seized and will be returned to the owner. The criminal investigation is ongoing.
