A UC Davis police officer noticed a suspicious pickup truck driving on campus on Saturday night with a truck bed full of bicycles. The officer made a traffic stop on the vehicle and determined that the bikes had recently been stolen on campus.
The driver, a resident of Hercules, was arrested and booked at the Yolo County Jail on charges of grand theft, possession of stolen property, possession of burglary tools and violation of probation.
The UC Davis Police Department has stepped up enforcement in response to bike theft on campus, including plainclothes officers patrolling on campus, according to a press release. Prior to this weekend’s arrest, there have been twice as many reports of bike theft this year as there were last year. UCDPD asks the community to report any suspicious activity on campus.
