Mounties in Vernon have recovered the motorcycle taken in Kelowna a day prior and police are turning to the public to help identify their suspect.

On July 28. 2016 at 06:01 am, the Kelowna RCMP received a report of a theft of a motorcycle that had just occurred outside the Tim Horton’s Restaurant located at 1936 Kane Road in Glenmore. Police have learned that the owner of the grey 2008 Honda motorcycle had been approached in the parking lot by the suspect who asked if he could sit on the bike, the owner obliged.

The suspect then started the motorcycle and rode around the parking lot, before taking off northbound on Glenmore Road.

Thanks to both the media and the general public, the motorcycle was recovered less than 24 hours later by the Vernon RCMP, after a tip was received from the public that the stolen motorcycle had been spotted in the 3800 block of 40th Avenue, says Cst. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesperson of the Kelowna RCMP.

Police are now releasing video surveillance photos taken of their alleged suspect in the motorcycle theft. We would like to once again turn to the public for their assistance, this time to help identify our suspect, adds Cst. O’Donaghey.
