On April 7 at about 11:20 p.m., officers were on patrol when they saw a subject riding a bicycle on a sidewalk, in violation of a Santa Monica Municipal Code.

They detained the subject and attempted to identify him to issue him a ticket. During the stop, the officers asked if they could look into the subject’s backpack.

After gaining consent, the officers saw several tools and a laptop. They checked the serial number of the laptop in the system and discovered it was reported stolen on April 4, 2015, from a vehicle burglary in the same area.

The subject was arrested for possession of stolen property and a probation violation. David Poley, 26, of Santa Monica, had bail set at $10,000.
