Suspect found with girl’s missing bike, two needles

DAYTON – There he was, driving a light blue, pink-striped girls mountain bike in the 100 block of South Sperling Avenue at 7:06 p.m.

A victim said she saw the man take it and described what he looked like, including the tattoos on both arms.

When he was found, he said he had purchased the bike, and the two needles in his pants pocket were for his insulin since he was diabetic.

Of course, he had no insulin on him, or bill of sale for the bike. He was taken to the Montgomery County jail on three citations related to a stolen bicycle.
