The RCMP are encouraging people to lock up their bikes inside their homes, believing that some thieves may be using bolt cutters to cut locks. One man has been arrested for attempting to steal a bike using this method, and another man was stopped cutting a lock after losing his key.
"If you see something like that happening then call us," said Sgt. LeMay. "We would rather get the call and be wrong than find out later that a bike was stolen. It's always better to err on the side of caution."
