Dirt bike and quad stolen on same day

The dirt bike has not been recovered, while the quad has been, along with a jet ski trailer.

Penticton RCMP responded to a stolen motorbike and a stolen quad and jet ski trailer last Thursday in separate incidents.

At 5:20 p.m., police responded to reports of a blue 2008 Polaris quad and jet ski trailer missing from a Lakehill Road property in Kaleden.

The quad is described as having worn paint and a cracked tail light.

One witness said a man in his 50s, around 5’9” with curly hair was seen driving a quad with the trailer. The witness saw a man on a bike smoking and holding a beer, and the bike was left behind.

Another witness said they were almost hit by a quad pulling a trailer.

The quad and trailer were recovered on Oak Avenue, and police say the incident remains under investigation, with officers reviewing video evidence.

Earlier that day, at around 6:15 a.m., officers responded to a report of a stolen 2001 Honda motorbike, likely stolen overnight from the back of a pickup truck at the back of a property on Albert Street in Penticton.

Police say the motorbike is distinguished by a faded front fender from a heat gun.
