Crook riding kid’s bicycle caught by cops

A man riding a child’s bicycle at 3 a.m. Wednesday no doubt caught the attention of San Francisco cops.

The brazen parolee allegedly swiped the small bike from a garage in Laguna Honda that morning. He was three blocks from the scene of the crime when cops arrested him.

A couple at the home identified the bicycle, then learned the crook had burglarized their car as well. He was found in possession of items from their car, police said.

He was booked into county jail.
