October 23; Tofino Street, 7000 block
At approximately 11:17 pm, police received a report of a stolen bike from a residence. Sometime around 4 pm on the same day, a blue Giant Yukon mountain bike, valued at approximately $1,500, was taken from the carport. When the bike was stolen, a BMX bike of very little value was left in its place.

October 25; Ash Avenue, Townsite
At approximately 10:45 pm, police stopped a vehicle on Ash Avenue for speeding while conducting patrols in the area.  While speaking to the 28-year-old female driving the vehicle, police observed signs of impairment. The female was advised she would be required to provide a breath sample. She refused and as a result was issued a 90-day driving prohibition and 30-day vehicle impound. Penalties for refusing to provide a sample are the same as providing a sample that registers a “fail” on the device.

October 27; Thunder Bay Street, 7100 block
At approximately 7:33 pm, police responded to a report of a break and enter at a motel. Sometime during the night, someone broke into a storage garage and stole a Dewalt table saw, a Honda pressure washer and a tile saw. Value of the stolen items is believed to be in excess of $1,000.

Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact Powell River RCMP at 604.485.6255, or to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1.800.222.TIPS (8477) or online at bccrimestoppers.com.
