Yesterday, the Barrie Police Service received a report involving an e-bike that was stolen on Thursday, October 5, 2023, between 10:10 a.m. and 10:20 a.m.
The e-bike, which is valued at over $3300.00, had been left locked out in front of a Bradford Street business while the owner went into the store. The Emmo Wild Pro model e-bike is described as black in colour, with 26” all terrain fat tires.
It would appear that e-bikes are being targeted by thieves and police are warning that one lock may not be enough to protect your investment. A second lock, removing the battery or disabling the bike are additional security options that should be considered.
Anyone with information on this theft is asked to please contact Barrie Police Constable Graham by email at [email protected]. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
