Local Mounties are investigating the recent theft of a pair of dirt bikes, and police say the machines were stolen in the Campbell River area.

We spoke to RCMP Constable Don Sinclair, who says fortunately the dirt bikes are back in the hands of their owner.

Constable Sinclair says the Comox Valley and Campbell River RCMP detachments continue to investigate the theft of those two dirt bikes in the Campbell River area.

No word on whether police have any suspects in the case.
