Keating bike shop robbed

More than $4,000 of merchandise and cash stolen from Brentwood Cycle

A small business in the Keating business area was the victim of a break and enter last week.

Brentwood Cycle, located in the same complex as the Co-Op on Keating X Road, was broken into sometime between last Saturday afternoon, Oct. 11, and Wednesday, Oct. 15. The owners are currently away on vacation and the shop had been closed.

“The suspects were able to gain entry through the roof where they managed to shimmy down a small vent hole in the unoccupied unit next door,” explained Corporal Pat Bryant of the Central Saanich Police.

“In order to gain entry to the bike shop they punched a hole through the wall in the empty unit,” he added.

According to Bryant the thieves made off with three men’s Norco mountain bikes (Charger and Storm models), bike accessories, cash and the store’s laptop.

“We think they probably had a truck to load everything in to but there was only one surveillance camera at the back of the building where the suspects exited and it was angled up and broken, which quite possibly could have been related to the theft,” he said.

Central Saanich police officers were in the process of fingerprinting at the shop last week and are hoping some members of the public might have some information on the theft.

“Other bike shops may have people contacting them about selling parts, or someone might find parted-out bikes online in the classifieds, so we are asking anyone who thinks they might have information to contact us right away,” Bryant said.

The Central Saanich Police Service can be reached at 250-652-4441.
