Recovery of stolen motorcycle leads to arrest

A Boston Bar man faces charges of possession of stolen property under $5,000 and mischief to property under $5,000

A Boston Bar man is facing two charges in connection with the theft of a motorcycle in Chilliwack.

The motorcycle was taken from an underground garage in 46200 block of Yale Rd. on May 31. The next day, members of the Boston Bar RCMP received information that the motorcycle was on a property in the Boston Bar area.

Through an in-depth investigation involving the Boston Bar RCMP and the Lower Mainland District Integrated Forensic Identification Services (IFIS), investigators were able to identify a suspect based on forensic evidence.

Robert Leo Jones, 29, of Boston Bar was arrested on July 26 and charges of possession of stolen property under $5,000 and mischief to property under $5,000 were recently approved.

“It is always very gratifying for investigators when we can call someone and tell them that we have recovered their property and made an arrest,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “It was good old-fashioned police work that led to charges being approved in this case.

Jones will appear in court again on Sept. 18 and remains in custody as a result of breaching charges in Boston Bar.
