An alleged thief in Regina didn’t steer clear of crime after being caught riding a stolen bike while trying to carry a large, stolen TV.
Police were dispatched to the 3100 block of Avonhurst Drive on June 1 after someone reported that a man had just stolen a bicycle and was trying to ride it while carrying a TV. Officers found a 22-year-old man in the area in possession of a stolen bike, TV and other items.
