Two men, aged 25 and 36, from Penticton, were arrested. The 36-year-old man was held for court due to an outstanding warrant. The 25-year-old man was released from custody and will appear in court at a later date.

"Due to the valuable information from the public and hard work from the Squamish and Sea to Sky police officers, the RCMP was able to recover four stolen mountain bikes,"    the release states.

These bikes had been stolen during two separate residential break-and-enters, which were reported a week prior in the Ravenswood neighbourhood, police said.

Multiple other items believed to be stolen were also located by police including: a Suzuki SUV from Penticton, a Hyundai SUV from Kelowna, licence plates from Merritt, a bag of items from Squamish, and ID.

"Squamish RCMP want to thank the public for all their assistance. These investigations are complex and as you can see, have involved multiple jurisdictions and police agencies" stated Banks.

Anyone with any further information is asked to contact the Squamish RCMP at 604-892-6100 or to contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or go to www.solvecrime.ca.
