Coquitlam Mounties are seeking the public's help to find the crooks responsible for a bike heist.
Police said the bikes were taken just after midnight on Aug. 6 from an underground parking garage in the 1400 block of Parkway Boulevard.
The thieves allegedly stole three bikes, including a red Yamaha motorcycle, a yellow Suzuki DRZ 250 dirt bike, and a black-and-silver Schwinn low-rider chopper-style bicycle. Anyone with information about the breakin or the whereabouts of the bikes is asked to contact Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file 2013-23055.
Warning issued after crash Coquitlam Mounties continue to investigate a crash that turned fatal.
The collision happened at 6 p.m. on Aug. 6 at the intersection of Dewdney Trunk Road and Lougheed Highway.
Police said the crash occurred when a red Buick Century turned left to go west on Dewdney Trunk at the same time a Mercedes-Benz 230 was driving through the intersection.
The force of the impact caused a second crash that included a black Acura that was stopped at the light.
A passenger in the Mercedes was taken to hospital in critical condition and later died.
"The investigation is in its early stages and it's too early to speculate whether charges will be laid," said Coquitlam RCMP Traffic Services Sgt. Dave Fee in a statement.
"I'd like to remind drivers to exercise due diligence when driving, especially when approaching intersections. A red or yellow light means stop. A moment of carelessness could cost someone their life."
Hit-and-run victim sought Coquitlam Mounties are looking for the victim
of an alleged hit-and-run from the weekend. Police said a pedestrian was crossing Shaughnessy Street and Lougheed Highway in a crosswalk in PoCo just after 1 p.m. Saturday, when a white Ford F250 pickup heading southbound failed to stop.
The impact caused the pedestrian to fall backward at first, and then he got up and continued to walk away. Police said when the traffic lights turned green, the driver of the pickup fled and did not offer any assistance.
Two witnesses at the scene approached the pedestrian and saw no visible injuries. The victim kept walking and left the area.
Mounties made patrols in the area attempting to check on the pedestrian, but he was nowhere to be found.
The victim is described as a 15-year-old boy who goes by the name "Robby."
Anyone who witnessed the incident or knows the identity of Robby is being asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2013-23524.
