Recovered stolen motorcycle results in arrest

A Boston Bar man is set to appear in court next week for charges relating to a stolen motorcycle.

It started on May 31, when the Chilliwack RCMP responded to a call of a motorcycle stolen from an underground garage in 46200 block of Yale Road. The next day, members of the Boston Bar RCMP received information that the motorcycle was on a property in the Boston Bar area.

A suspect was identified through forensic examination, part of an investigation involving the Boston Bar RCMP and the Lower Mainland District Integrated Forensic Identification Services.

The suspect, Robert Leo Jones, 29 of Boston Bar, was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property under $5000, and mischief to property under $5000.

"It is always very gratifying for investigators when we can call someone and tell them that we have recovered their property and made an arrest," said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.  "It was good old fashioned police work that led to charges being approved in this case.

Robert Leo Jones will appear in court again on September 18 and is currently still in custody stemming from breach charges in Boston Bar.
