MISSOULA – Three men have been arrested in connection with what the Missoula County Attorney’s Office is calling bicycle theft ring.

Jason Edgar, Jason Silva and Kory Mckessick were arrested by the Missoula Police Department after a bicycle theft operation was discovered running from under the Reserve Street Bridge.

The investigation began after police got a call that people were removing multiple bikes from a storage shed behind the Missoula Manor.

Police discovered Edgar and three others upon arrival and learned of Mckessick and Silva’s involvement after interviews with Edgar and the three others at Missoula Manor.

Missoula Police discovered multiple bikes and bike parts under the south east side of the Reserve Street bridge and say they will work to reunite them with their owners.
