Halifax Regional Police is requesting the public’s assistance in locating the individual(s) responsible for stealing an electric bicycle from the Angus L. Macdonald bridge on September 10.
At 5:30 p.m., the owner of the bicycle was travelling on the Angus L. Macdonald bridge when he sustained a flat tire. The owner left the bicycle mid-span on the bridge and left to get a spare tire. When he returned at 6:40 p.m., the bicycle was gone.
The bicycle is described as a Yuba cargo utility electric bicycle. The bicycle is black and has a grey cargo tote containing batteries above the rear wheel.
