Good news this Friday!

A missing bicycle, belonging to a Victoria nurse, has been recovered!

The victim reported that her bicycle was stolen Wednesday while she was working in the 700-block of Douglas Street, administering COVID-19 vaccinations.

At 2 a.m. Friday morning, VicPD spotted a 44-year-old man pushing the distinctive Trek bicycle in the 500-block of Herald Street.

The patrol officer — a former homicide detective — confirmed the stolen bike and arrested the man without incident.

The suspect, a 44-year-old Kelowna man who came to Victoria in January, faces recommended charges for possession of stolen property and was released with conditions for a future court date.

“This comes at a fitting step during National Nurses Week, which recognizes the incredible, selfless contributions of nurses both every day and during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said VicPD in a statement.

This file remains under investigation.

VicPD are asking anyone with information to call (250) 995-7654.
