Stolen bicycles may soon cycle home

Local residents mourning the loss of a recently stolen bicycle may soon have their property returned to them, thanks to police department collaboration and one quick-thinking Los Altos resident.

A Los Altos police officer arrested San Jose resident Pablo Bautista, 22, Feb. 27 and charged him with a Manor Way burglary that would have cost the victim an $11,000 bicycle had not a neighbor reported the crime. With the Los Altos Police Department’s help, Mountain View Police detectives investigating a separate bicycle theft connected Bautista to the crime and uncovered a storage locker containing even more stolen bikes.
