A Richmond resident has been reunited with his e-bike, which was stolen last month.

A Richmondite is thrilled to be reunited with his stolen e-bike, recovered by Mounties during a raid at a Richmond residence earlier this month.

“In speaking with the man, our officers learned he had only owned it for three days before it was allegedly stolen,” said Cpl. Adriana O’Malley, Richmond RCMP spokesperson, in a statement.

The man told officers that he never expected to see his bike again and was “delighted” when the call came from police, according to Mounties.

The e-bike was reported stolen on Oct. 10 from a building in the 6000-block of Minoru Boulevard, following an alleged break and enter to a bike locker.

On Nov. 16, Richmond RCMP General Investigation Section were executing a search warrant on a Richmond residence as part of an investigation unrelated to the break and enter, when they found the stolen e-bike.

Police said they would not provide specific details about the search warrant, as the investigation is active and ongoing.

Officers were able to reunited the bike with its owner on Nov. 22.

“Seeing how much this e-bicycle means to the man and how its return impacts him, reminds our officers why we work so hard everyday to serve our community,” said O’Malley. “Every time we recover and return an item to its rightful owner it’s a win for the community.”

Richmond Mounties are encouraging anyone with information about a possible crime to contact them or the police of jurisdiction.
