Victoria, BC – VicPD has another tool at its disposal to combat bike theft in the City of Victoria and Township of Esquimalt.
Due to an increase in bike theft, VicPD acquired bait bike technology to trial over the past two months.
VicPD’s Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) has deployed bait bikes in strategic spots with success over the past two months. They were able to arrest a Victoria area man, who was subsequently sentenced to 8 months in jail. Another man was arrested while stealing a bait bike and is facing theft charges.
