According to RCMP, they are both known prolific offenders, one of whom was on conditions to not be in possession of break and enter tools.

A search of this suspect yielded a bolt cutter and a host of other tools that could be used to break into a property.

“If you see something suspicious happening in your community, say something. This is a great example of citizens helping to keep their community safe by reporting suspicious behaviour,” said Cst. Nancy Saggar in a statement.

“We want to thank the complainant for calling the police right away and giving us the best chance to catch the thieves in action.”

West Shore RCMP are now seeking the owner of the bike that was nearly stolen to reunite them with their property.
