Burglary suspect nabbed while riding his bicycle

  A man wanted for burglary who for a while eluded capture this week was arrested by a deputy who spotted him riding his bicycle through Newhall. The suspect – a 48-year-old mechanic who lives in Newhall – was arrested without incident about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. “There was a residential burglary that was reported in Newhall earlier this week and suspect was identified,” Shirley Miller of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station told The Signal Wednesday. “When a patrol deputy was driving on Lyons Avenue at Peachland Avenue on her PM shift, she recognized a man on a bicycle as being the wanted burglary suspect,” she said. The suspect was arrested on suspicion of burglary, a felony. His bail was set at $50,000. jholt@signalscv.com 661-287-5527 on Twitter @jamesarthurholt
