Charges of possessing stolen property and trafficking in stolen-identity documents have been laid against a South Surrey man after police seized several bicycles from a house in the 1700-block of 154 Street.

According to a police statement issued Thursday, David Goldstein was arrested Aug. 2 around 4 p.m. after Surrey RCMP officers went to "a residence known for property crime" to arrest him on an outstanding warrant.

Police said there was a brief foot chase that ended with the arrest of Goldstein and the recovery of "numerous pieces of stolen identification."

Police said the investigation led them to a number of possibly stolen bikes on the 154 Street property that were being advertised for sale on the Craigslist website.

Two persons of interest have been identified in the stolen-bicycle case, the RCMP said, but so far, no arrests have been made.

Police are trying to locate the owners of the recovered bicycles.

Goldstein remains in custody and is scheduled to appear before a judge in Surrey Provincial Court on Tuesday, Aug. 14.
