Langley RCMP is hoping to reunite a Honda XR 100 dirt bike with its rightful owner after police seized it from a man driving it on a sidewalk on Nov. 5.
A Langley officer observed a dirt bike approach the traffic light on 204 Street at 64 Avenue.
When the light turned green, the dirt bike rider drove through the intersection and onto the sidewalk. The officer activated his emergency lights and followed the bike for approximately half of a block. The rider stopped in the 6300 block of 204 Street.
The officer spoke with the rider who couldn’t provide any ID and indicated the bike belonged to his nephew.
A closer inspection of the bike showed the VINs had been destroyed.
The rider was given a violation ticket for driving without insurance.
The bike was seized to determine ownership and the number for the ‘nephew’ given by the rider was not correct.
Police continue to work with ICBC Special Investigative Unit to locate the rightful owner.
If you or someone you know recently had a Honda XR 100 dirt bike stolen and would like to see it returned, contact Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
The owner should be able to provide the correct year, description, colour, etc .
