    Attempted theft foiled

    A UAPD officer went to the Gould-Simpson building on Tuesday in response to a man who appeared to be around 50 years old and was trying to steal a bike. The witness said the man wore a black baseball cap, a gray hooded sweatshirt and he was carrying bolt cutters and a small black travel case. Another officer reported he had seen the subject near South Hall. The officer went to the area and found the man matching the description. The officer asked the man to give him the pliers he was holding, which he did. The man said he had intended to steal a bike. He found one secured to the bike rack at the Gould-Simpson building with a cable lock, but he was unable to cut the lock with the pliers. He said he saw a woman watching him so he left. The man showed the officer which bike he had tried to steal. The cable lock had a deep cut in it but was still usable.

    The officer arrested the man for attempted theft and booked him into Pima County Jail. The officer left a note on the bike the man attempted to steal and was contacted a few hours later by the owner. The officer explained to the woman what had happened. She said she wanted to participate in the prosecution.
