This wasn’t just a bike or two. The Police found what they believe to be 150 stolen bikes in that shop.
There’s a staggering amount on display.
“We’ve got everything from Canadian Tire specials up to the high-end carbon fibre bikes. The carbon fibre bikes are worth up in the area of $7,000,” outlined Insp. Paul Vorvis.
Police returned to the Bicycle Clinic to try and retrieve more bikes, but the ceiling was deemed unsafe. Our CityNews camera found dozens of bikes hanging inside and many more piled up at the back.
The store’s closure was happy news for local residents.
“I think people are actually pretty happy about it.hopefully it’s the start of the cops really rack cracking down on some of the bike theft,” praised Kevin Smith.
Owner Igor Kenk, 49, and alleged accomplice Jean Laveau, 47, are each charged with:
2) Attempt Theft,
3) Possession of Stolen Property,
4) Possession of Burglar Tools.
Officers claim they also found cocaine and marijuana inside the shop at 927 Queen Street West.
