UPDATE: The 3 bicycles (earlier reports of 5 bikes were incorrect) reported stolen, were retrieved by TCHC Special Constables – two bicycles from a TCHC property on Winchester Street and one that was abandoned on the street nearby.
We have received two reports of bicycles being stolen last night. We’ll post any additional information here once we hear back about photos, and any additional information such as whether police have been contacted.

We received an email about a separate incident.
Last night at 5 am someone broke into our back yard, and stole both of our bikes. The bikes were both locked to a fence and locked to each other. We saw the people walking back from ontario street out of breath.
The bikes were taken from an aberdeen laneway. One is a bright yellow women single speed fuji bike with cow coloured grip tape, and gold hubs, the other is a large mens all matte black bike whit wide black rims.
Please post this and Keep an eye out for the cabbage town bike thieves. We saw the two people but just don’t know where they took our bikes!
