Police say officers have arrested a Hamilton man and recovered tens of thousands of dollars in reportedly stolen property after a two-month investigation into the theft of high-end bicycles.
The investigation involved bikes reportedly being stolen from both residential and commercial properties in Ancaster, Dundas and the Aldershot area.
Last Thursday, police say officers executed a search warrant at an east-end residence and seized 26 mountain bikes with a total value of more than $40,000, along with a multitude of bike parts, including rims, tires and handlebars, as well as Rossignol skis and prohibited weapons.
Jason Kane, 43, of Hamilton, is facing more than half a dozen charges, including possession of stolen property over $5,000.
Police say more charges may be laid as the investigation continues.
