    This is crazy. The police station is less than a 100 yards away and the bandit still got away? 4 more years of this craziness from the Commish?

      Umm, perhaps his escape route didn’t take him through the police station. If he was Canadian, and I’m not saying he was, he may have Mountie training.

    Hey, a lot of Candians I know ride bicycles! Just sayin. The Dutch as well are very fond of bikes, though I don’t really know of any Dutch folks here. There are a lot of Canadians though…

      As a Canadian who does ride a bike I would just say you will find most Canadians have a sense of humour, plus an ability to laugh at themselves! LOL.

        As a Yankee troll I will say I appreciate the Canadians sense of humor.

    "Before leaving the location on a bicycle…"  A bicycle!  Slapping my knee and laughing out loud!  I hope everyone is ok.  🙂  Nice to read that the man confronted the guy.  Still some good and brave people in the world.  I hope the Bicycle Bandit is caught and gets what is coming to him.

    The sad part is the police station is literally 100 yards (if that) away from the mini mart in BT. Goes to show you how much respect criminals have for our RCIPS.

    Need to get tougher on these criminals when they are caught to send a STRONG message to others who may have thoughts of committing the same crimes.

      Too many importees, idle wasters, drug sellers and users.  The RCIPS should be more vigilant and better able to stamp out crime, only if they could see and understand what is happening around them.  The Bodden Town (Coe Wood) Public Beach would be a starter.  Pure loofers, loiterers and whatever else you want to add to the equation.
