ASPEN, Colo., March 20 (UPI) -- A Colorado man said he has his stolen bicycle back after the thief left it at a courthouse with a note signed "Drunk."

Jay Maytin of Aspen said the bicycle he received as a gift in 1999 was missing for less than 24 hours when he saw a newspaper article describing a bike that had been left Friday at the Pitkin County Courthouse and turned over to Aspen Police, The Aspen Times reported Tuesday.

"Sorry. I stole this bike. I rode it home. Please give it back -- Drunk," the note accompanying the bike read.

"I knew a drunk took it because it doesn't have much of a re-sale value," Maytin said. However, he said, "to me it's worth $500. It's transportation."

Maytin said he would not have pressed charges against the thief.

"All I wanted was my bike back," he said.
