  • Bike Theives B.C. Ferries

    My motorbike was stolen on Saturday from horseshoe bay. When I returned from a 2 hour trip to the city, my bike was gone from the upper highway. As I returned a green truck with two guys and a tarp in the back covering something, was slowing down, then they saw us and sped off. I chased it and saw them get into the ferry lineup and immediately they boarded a ferry. I think it was for sunshine coast (possible Nanaimo but most likely sunshine coast). I have a description of the truck. Green 90-95 sonoma or ranger single cab 2wd. With a hand painted white sign on the side saying “cut and reno” and a picture of a saw crossed with another tool. The truck is dark green and also looked hand painted. Perhaps they change the colour. What was suspicious was that there was no phone number or website, and no tools in the truck. The guy driving was 20-25 and blond medium build. Looked Slavic.

    I called the cops they did f’ all and didn’t even come to the site.

    I returned to the site a couple days later and looking around in the woods saw my bike stashed under the same colour, and age, tarp as was in the back of the truck. My theory is as follows: These guys cruise around and steal motorcycles, bicycles etc. They stash them until they are sure they won’t be catching the same ferry then load them up and catch the ferry last minute.

    Even though I found my bike I want to get this info out there.
