RCMP in Trinity-Conception have made an arrest in connection with a stolen dirt bike.

On Thursday, officers attempted to stop the driver of a bike that matched the description of a dirt bike that was stolen in the area of Bristol's Hope.

The male driver failed to stop and fled.

On Friday morning, police arrested a 25-year-old man and recovered the bike. The man is facing a number of charges, including possession of stolen property over $5,000 and flight from police.

A number of other stolen items were also recovered that were not previously reported.

The items have since been returned to their rightful owner.
