Andrew Lee stands by the spot where he had his bicycle stolen while he was at work.

It’s a long walk to work without wheels

Sooke website will help people reconnect with their lost/stolen items

There is nothing worse than having something stolen, especially something you need — like your bike.

Andrew Lee moved to Sooke about eight months ago and works at Little Vienna Bery. While he was working the night shift his bicycle was stolen right along West Coast Road. Now he has to walk one hour each way to get to work.

Lee put up posters but with not much information coming forward about his stolen bike, he decided to go online.

“Facebook is big now,” he said, “and you might get that extra person not looking at the poster but seeing it online.”

He thinks it will help band the community together because the majority of crimes are solved by eye witnesses.

The bike is a 2009 Gary Fisher HiFi Deluxe GZ size 17.5 inches with 26” tires. It is metallic black with white and pink lettering. Lee said this is the only bike like this in Sooke.

A reward is being offered for its return which is more than the bike could be sold for.

No questions asked if it is returned.

He thinks the site will be useful for a lot of things, like a child’s lost toy, lost pets, a missing person in Sooke or the surrounding areas.

Lee, so far, is really liking living in Sooke. He has a heavy metal band called Vampiric Dawn and he also goes by the stage name of Vaarg Morgue. To visit the Sooke Community Lost and Found link go to:
