Groom steals bait bike on way to reception

Over the course of four days, Kamloops police targeted bicycle thefts through the use of a bait bike program — with eight men arrested and 23 charges laid.

One of those arrested was a man who had just been married hours earlier. The 41-year-old was en route to his formal wedding reception. The well dressed thief saw a locked, high end bike and found time to stop, cut the lock off and steal it. The bike was recovered from the man’s vehicle ... and he was also nailed for driving when prohibited.
Cops said none of the eight arrested were homeless. Most of those involved are in the drug scene.
