After a media release was issued by Sunshine Coast RCMP on July 30 regarding the driver of a suspicious white van that stopped to speak with a youth outside the Gibsons and Area Community Centre, the driver of that van contacted RCMP himself.

“Police determined that in fact there was no ill-intent,” said Const. Harrison Mohr. “The driver of the van had turned in a found bike to RCMP in April, and the bike was later returned to him as no one had claimed it. The driver wanted to give the bike to a child in need, but after the youth he spoke with declined his offer, he ended up donating it to a local store.

“Sunshine Coast RCMP thanks everyone for the tips they submitted in relation to this investigation.”
