Atherton: Police arrest pair accused of stealing high-end bikes

 

Atherton police arrested two people accused of stealing two bikes with a total value of $11,000 from the University of California at Davis and attempting to sell them on Craigslist's Atherton page, according to a press release.

On Saturday, Sept. 28, Atherton police met with two people, a 33-year-old Colfax man and a 28-year-old Antelope woman, to buy the stolen road bikes after the bike owners found the Craigslist postings and contacted police, according to police.

Police verified the bikes belonged to the victims, and they were returned to their owners. The thieves were arrested for possession of stolen property, according to police.

Editor's note: It is The Almanac's policy to withhold the names of those arrested for most crimes until the District Attorney's Office has determined that there is sufficient evidence to file charges in the case.
