A 42-year-old man has been sentenced to six months in county jail after stealing a bicycle from a Menlo Park parking garage in July of 2009.
Police apprehended James Durr after the owner of the bicycle saw an advertisement for her bike on craigslist.com the same day it was stolen, according to Steve Wagstaffe, deputy district attorney for San Mateo County. Police set up a meeting to buy the bicycle from the man, and arrested him.
Mr. Durr pleaded no contest to the theft in a pre-trial conference on April 13, according to Mr. Wagstaffe. He will receive credit for the four months he has already served in jail, and will be under probation until he pays the woman $700 in restitution.
