arrests

Sacramento police have arrested two men believed to be involved with the theft of Livestrong cultist Lance Armstrong’s bicycle.

Whew. That’s a relief. A worried nation now can sleep easier with the knowledge that these two hoodlums are off the streets. No need to lock your doors at night, thanks to the courageous work of the men in blue from Sacramento.

Officers said on Tuesday that they arrested 39-year-old Lee Crider on suspicion of stealing Armstrong’s Trek Livestrong 1274 and two other bikes from members of Team Astana.

Another man, 34-year-old Dung Le, was arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen property.

Mugshots have not been provided to the public at the time this report was published, but I have a sneaking suspicion one of the suspects looked something like this:

Unfortunately, not all the news was good. Apparently, two of Armstrong’s missing bikes have never been recovered, leaving the seven-time Tour de France champ the difficult task of having to choose from only about 300 bikes to ride.

Poor guy.
