On Saturday November 4, a Culver City resident reported the theft of their bicycle to the Culver City Police Department. The Culver City Police Department's Special Enforcement Team (SET), initiated a thorough bike patrol examination of the creek area situated behind the 10400 block of Jefferson Boulevard.
During their patrol, officers spotted an individual closely matching the suspect's description, standing in proximity to a bicycle that corresponded to the stolen one. Upon approaching the suspect, the individual attempted to create distance but was eventually apprehended by the officers.
Subsequently, the stolen bicycle was successfully recovered and reunited with its rightful owner. Further investigation revealed that the suspect was subject to a no-bail warrant for a parole violation, leading to his subsequent booking at CCPD on charges of grand theft and the outstanding warrant.
The bicycle's owner expressed their appreciation to the officers for recovering the bicycle and for their role in removing the alleged criminal from the streets.
