The Whistler RCMP has released images taken from surveillance footage in the hopes of identifying a suspect connected to the recent theft of a mountain bike from Creekside.

At approximately 12:15 a.m. on Saturday, May 4, police were notified that a bike had been stolen from the 2100 block of Lake Placid Road. The bike’s owner had entered a nearby business only to return to find the bike missing, police said.

West Van woman arrested for dangerous driving

A West Vancouver woman is facing possible charges after being arrested for dangerous driving on Highway 99 last week, police said.

At approximately 2:30 p.m. last Friday, May 3, Whistler RCMP were tipped off to a vehicle travelling northbound at excessive speeds and driving dangerously near Spring Creek. Police have since learned that the black, 2017 Range Rover was trying to pass other vehicles on the shoulder of the road, and, according to one eyewitness, came “very close to cyclists who were also on the shoulder,” police said in a release.

The vehicle was followed by a concerned citizen to Whistler Village, where officers arrested the 43-year-old driver for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

The woman was subsequently released with a court date in North Vancouver set for June 12.

Whistler RCMP continues to investigate and is asking for witnesses, or anyone with dash camera footage of the incident to contact the detachment at 604-932-3044, or Sea to Sky Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or to remain anonymous.
