The past month has had a large increase in the theft of bicycle in Penticton and probably the South Okanagan Similkameen area.  All bicycle owners are urged to securely lock your bike when not in use or put it out of sight.  Anyone with information on the person/s responsible for these thefts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or our website www.sostips.ca for other anonymous ways of passing along information.  Should your information lead to an arrest, you may qualify for a cash reward and you will never testify in court.  Crime Stoppers is not a police program and does not subscribe to call display.
