Stolen motorcycle recovered

A Brockville area man who reported his 2003 Honda Magna motorcycle stolen in September has been reunited with his bike after placing an online ad.

The man posted pictures of his stolen motorcycle on Kijiji asking people to be on the lookout. A Brockville couple walking in the area of Park Street and Front Avenue noticed a motorcycle similar to the picture on Kijiji and contacted the owner and police.

Officers confirmed through the vehicle identification number that it was the bike stolen in September.

The motorcycle was seized and returned to its owner and the investigation is continuing.
