Hamilton Police have charged a man after he walked away with the ghost bike memorial for Jay Keddy.
The 53-year-old Keddy was hit and killed while riding his bike up the Claremont Access in December 2015.
Police say the 50-year-old man who took the bike claims he didn’t know about the bike’s significance.
Officers arrested the man about 50 feet from the memorial site at around noon yesterday and issued a Provincial Offence Notice for Pedestrian Impede Traffic.
The “ghost bike” is now back at its original location.
