“A 20 year-old Pembroke male has been arrested in connection with this incident and is currently assisting police with inquires.

“It should be noted that the successful recovery of property and the arrest of a suspect, is directly attributed to members of the public contacting police after observing multiple bikes unnecessarily parked and strewed around this particular residential property.

    I doubt the 20 year old punk owned the property. Find the property owner and arrest them! Under the law they have to prove that they knew nothing about the stolen bikes…otherwise they are guilty as charged.

      Are you serious ?
      If I go on a bike stealing spree and stash them on my rented property is my landlord , who lives 6 parishes away , guilty ?

      This is the way things are reported here and by now you should be used to it . I’d bet that what was omitted was that it was at his residence where he lived , as in his mamma’s or granma’s house . Do you really believe that he could operate in such a way on some one else’s property (as in a complete stranger) without their knowledge ?

      And what ought to happen is the insurance companies who have paid out the theft claims on these bikes should go after his backside for complete compensation . That would be far better than a stupid $1000 fine .

    • Um Um Like says:

      Guilty until proven innocent?

      • Triangle Drifter says:

        Yep, like those bikes just appeared without anyones knowledge.

        Bermuda is a little place. Impossible to have a remote place where this type of operation goes on undetected by neighbours.

        Keeping quiet about what you know only helps to drive your insurance rates up. Cycle insurance is insane because of theft.

          @Toodle and Um Um
          Clearly you guys don’t know our laws. So I will help you out. If stolen items are found on your property, you are guilty of helping to facilitate the theft unless you can prove otherwise. This is the law in most countries as it relates to stolen property. Yes, you have to prove your innocence as it relates to stolen items sitting on your property. Property owners are expected to know what is going on on their property. And if the courts decide that they turned a blind eye to foolishness going on, then they will be charged accordingly.

    Looks like a Bike “chop shop”! This operator contributed the continued epidemic of Bike theft and should be sent to prison for a long stretch. His operation encourages and provides thieves to means of disposing of bikes in return for compensation. He should be made an example of.

  3. Midge pullen says:

    Congrats to observant public who did the right thing.

  4. 235 says:

    With all the investment in security cameras he should have been found out sooner. Hopefully my stolen bike is in that pile.

  5. DBL says:

    These bikes were probably taken from in the City where there are CCTV cameras

  6. Truth is killin' me... says:

    runnin’ a get rich quick scheme! Wait till his name comes before the courts!! Watch yah back son.

  7. Construction Worker says:

    I’m missing an old model SportsCity….you found any of them there?

    That’s a whoooooole lot of Scoopy’s!

  8. Jus' Wonderin' says:

    How can guys see what bikes they recovered? Shouldn’t the man put out a list?

    • Cousinnnn says:

      Damn could you give them some time to go through everything. I’m sure they’ll release pictures/ Id numbers etc.

  9. where they at though says:

    If guilty, He should get 5 years for each stolen bike or bike part to run consecutively not concurrently.Well done to the observant public. I know the feeling of getting a bike stolen I have had it happen twice to me and thanks to an observant person I was able to get one of them back but not before they wrecked my bike.

  10. Pot puller says:

    The police should hire him to find out other tricks these gangsters are up to.

    So anyway any Moby parts in Der…

  11. Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

    What makes me angry is that if someone is caught stealing food which EVERY human needs to survive they get persecuted to the fullest…but these THEIVES who steal everything under yhe sun all get the benefit of the doubt….apparently ya’ll who are disliking these comments have never had their lives turned upside down by a thief.

    I despise 2 breeds of people Thieves and Liars…off with their heads.

  12. Triangle Drifter says:

    It would be nice if the police gave the statistics of the theft reported. Specifically I’d like to know which models are most popular with the thieves so I can make sure that I do not purchase that model.

    A bike is transport to me, not something to inflate my ego. Got nobody to impress. Just need it able to haul around something like a bag of Quick Seal every so often.
