Victoria, BC – Patrol officers are asking for your help as we work to locate suspects and return a unique tricycle stolen from an Oaklands home between 11:00 p.m. and midnight on Saturday, September 22nd.
The tricycle belongs to a teen girl with mobility challenges. The customized tricycle is her main source of transportation as she is unable to ride a two-wheel bicycle.
The tricycle is described as customized light blue, three-wheeled tricycle with “white wall” style tires, a black seat and several small rusty spots. It’s a three-speed bike with the gears and brakes on the right hand side. There is a photograph of the tricycle below, however the white basket was recently removed.
A neighbour reported seeing a suspect with the tricycle in the Oaklands area. The suspect is described as a Caucasian man in his 20s, wearing baggy clothes and a baseball hat. Others who know the family have reported seeing the tricycle in downtown Victoria.
