Mountain bikes stolen from Sts’ailes school

Reward offered for information leading to return

A $500 reward is being offered for information about seven mountain bikes stolen from Sts’ailes Community School over the weekend.

The KONA bikes were taken from a storage bin behind the school sometime between Oct.26-29.

Sts’ailes Community School principal Bill Dietrich said the padlocks had been smashed.

“They’re good mountain bikes,” he says. “They were part of our phys-ed and athletics programs.”

The bikes are black with white lettering but Dietrich says thieves sometimes use tape to conceal the name and make the bike look older.

The school is offering a reward to anyone with information that leads to criminal charges and/or the return of all seven bikes.

“We’re hoping that someone will come along and do the right thing and bring them back to us,” Dietrich says.

Any information can be forwarded to the Sts’ailes Community School administration at 604-796-2146.

The RCMP file for the case is 2017-46169.

“Please assist your community in stopping these thieves from taking community property,” reads a Facebook post from the school. “It affects programming for your children.”
