Credit cards, bicycle taken

Lee Albert Reynolds, 26, Grand Junction, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of second-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass of auto, criminal possession of two or more financial devices and theft of between $50 and $300 after two credit cards and a vehicle title were taken from a truck and a bicycle was taken from a garage in the 500 block of Sycamore Avenue, according to his arrest affidavit from the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office.

Reynolds returned the two credit cards and bicycle to the victim Tuesday night, telling authorities he wasn’t the person who stole the items, the arrest affidavit said. Someone else did, he told police, but he was just trying to “do the right thing” and return to the victim his property because stealing is “okay from Walmart” but not “from people,” Reynolds’ affidavit said.
