Two days later, the off-duty RCMP officer was on a walk and reported to the on-duty officer that he had seen a man riding a stolen bicycle.

“Off-duty officers followed on foot to maintain visual awareness of the bicycle’s location until uniformed officers arrived,” Officer Andrew Hodges said in a news release.

The police on duty arrived at the scene and arrested a 55-year-old man for “possession of proceeds of crime valued at more than $5,000.”
