GLENDALE, Calif., May 17 (UPI) -- Police in California said they arrested a man seen riding a stolen pink bicycle mere hours after his release from jail.
Glendale police said Michael Toplin, 31, was spotted at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, a few hours after his release on parole on a receiving stolen property charge, riding a 10-year-old girl's pink bicycle that had been reported stolen 10 minutes earlier, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.
Officers said Toplin was still wearing a black jumpsuit given to jail inmates who do not have their own clothing.
Police said Toplin, who allegedly told the officers he received the bike from a friend, was arrested on suspicion of receiving stolen property and petty theft with a prior conviction.
