Had your bike stolen recently? Is it one of these?
Police said they nabbed a man on Jan. 25 who had allegedly been on a bike-stealing spree -- catching the suspect red-handed with a U-Haul truck full of stolen bicycles. Officers are now in the process of trying to return the bikes to their rightful owners, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department.
The man, a 49-year-old transient named Patrick Klein, was reported by a Mountain View resident who witnessed him stealing a bicycle from a bike-storage locker at an apartment complex located at 505 Cypress Point Dr., Jaeger said.
Officers located Klein and his U-Haul truck, and arrested him for burglary, possession of narcotics and possession of burglary tools.
The MVPD has set up a gallery of the recovered bikes, which can be viewed on the department's blog.
