Police looking for disruptive Crofton dirt bike riders

The tranquility of Crofton has been rattled by a pair of motor sports enthusiasts, and the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are hoping to put a stop to it.

"There are a couple of guys on dirt bikes in the Crofton area doing their best to disrupt the peace and quiet of more than a few local residents," Cpl. Krista Hobday said. "They have been described as ‘driving like idiots,’ ‘ripping up and down the streets overtaking vehicles,’ and ‘almost hitting a pedestrian trying to cross the street on a mobility scooter.’" Crofton residents have been calling police with descriptions of the bikes, but because they have full face shields on their helmets, the riders themselves haven’t been identified. Under the Motor Vehicle Act, the actual riders have to be identified in order for charges to be pursued. Police have been conducting patrols in the hopes of catching the riders before they hurt themselves or someone else.

One of the bikes is described as yellow and white, and the other is described as green and white.

Anyone with information about the riders should contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
