You know, I could really use a new bike. But man, they sure are pricey. Maybe I’d be better off stealing one. Like that one over there by the police station. It looks nice.

A man was arrested last week after allegedly trying to steal a bicycle from in front of the Gladstone Police Department in Oregon.
Cops posted surveillance footage of the apparent theft attempt. An individual wearing a dark colored hoodie and apparent face covering walked up to the station with what seemed to be bolt cutters. He began working on it, but not even a minute passed before a cop stepped outside and confronted him.
The officer ordered him against the wall, pulled out a taser, commanded him to get on the ground, and handcuffed the individual. A female cop later ran out to assist the arrest. The two were then joined by a male officer.
The time stamp is dated Thursday, just before 6:30 p.m.
Adam Valle, 26, has been charged with theft, criminal mischief, and felon in possession of a weapon.
