Bike tracks lead to Port Angeles man’s arrest

PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles police say someone found a stolen bike by following its tracks in the snow.

Brandon Roberts, 24, of Port Angeles was booked into the Clallam County jail for investigation of first-degree burglary, theft of a firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm and criminal trespassing.

At about 7:30 a.m. Friday, police responded to a report of an overnight burglary on the 1100 block of West Seventh Street, according to a news release.

The victim discovered a garage and vehicles had been broken into and had items stolen, including a gun and a bicycle.

The victim followed bike tracks in the snow, found the bike and called police.

A neighbor told police they also saw a man trespassing on their property. Police then spotted the man, who began to leave when contacted by police.

Officers arrested Roberts without incident and found he was in possession of ammunition that matched the caliber of the firearm stolen in the burglary.

Officers then checked the area where they had seen Roberts and found the stolen gun.
