One year after Kenk’s Arrest, no sign of Trial for Bike Thief

Originally posted in the Forum:


A year after Igor Kenk’s notorious West Queen West bicycle repair shop was raided, there is no sign of a trial for the alleged bike thief, suggesting difficulties faced by the Crown in a case with substantial amounts of evidence to process.

It’s been a year since The Bicycle Clinic was targeted in a police sting that uncovered 2,865 bikes in garages and warehouses throughout the city. The eccentric 49-year-old repair man, a former police officer from Slovenia, was hit with 58 charges relating to bike theft and 22 charges relating to drugs. About $70,000 worth of marijuana and cocaine was allegedly found in the rented Yorkville house Mr. Kenk shared with classical pianist Jeanie Chung, who also faces drug charges.
