Tracy police arrested an 18-year-old man for an alleged home burglary on the 400 block of Gianelli Street at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23.

The arrest occurred after police received a call regarding a home alarm sounding. The responding officer said he saw a man leaving the area on a bicycle. When the officer tried to stop the man, he reportedly jumped off his bicycle and ran south, hopping fences as he headed east. The man was stopped a few blocks away by police, officers said.

Police reportedly recovered two cameras and a replica handgun.

tracyresdnt & mrmnfallacy

On second thought, why don't we wait until after th trial an he's convicted ta ensure we got th right guy an not convict him based on somethang printed in th media? Looks like they got th right guy but sometimes what looks like a sure thing turns out ta be somethang else. Don't mind publishin photos of criminals but don't thank we should rush inta it by publishin a photo of someone that might be innocent. That's why we have courts instead of tryin these people through th press.

Hey Ornley, I'm sure you probably remember this name as you seem to pay attention to things the way I do, Richard Jewell. That one name supports your point, nuff said.

Wasn't he th guy that found a pipe bomb in th 96 Olympics that was unfairly tried an convicted by th media an later they found out it was planted thair by someone else?

How about th college sports team that was accused by a woman of gang raping her, convicted and tried by th media an later finding out that she made the whole thing up?

This is an common occurrence everywhere every election year. The thieves are accomplishing nothing since they may be able to steal your signs, they'll never be able to steal your vote.
