Grand Forks RCMP are reaching out to the public to assist in finding a stolen E-bike from a senior resident at Silver Kettle Village in the Boundary City.

RCMP said on (Wednesday) May 22, 2024, Willard Trainor, a 96-year-old resident of the Silver Kettle Village was a victim of a theft when his $3,000 E-bike was lifted from the 2300 block of 72nd Avenue in Grand Forks.

RCMP believe the theft happened late Saturday night, May 18th or early Sunday morning.

Police said the bike was locked at the front entrance to the building in their bike rack, but the thief cut the lock and damaged the bike rack in order to steal the E-bike.

It’s disturbing on so many levels that someone would knowingly enter a senior community living residence and deprive a senior of his mode of transportation, stated Detachment Commander Sergeant Darryl Peppler.

Mr. Trainor lost more than his bike, he lost his mobility and some measure of trust.

Grand Forks RCMP are investigating this theft, but would like to ask the public to keep an eye out for this E-bike.

The bike is described as a Giant Momentum E-Plus E-bike, red in colour.

In addition, Grand Forks RCMP Victim Services is engaged and seeking support for Mr. Trainor.

If anyone has any information on this crime, please contact the Grand Forks RCMP at 250 442 8288 or if you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
