On June 6 at approximately 8:45 a.m., Santa Monica police officers were dispatched to the 1400 block of Ocean Avenue in regards to a bike theft that had just occurred in the 800 block of the beach.

The victim stated that at approximately 8:30 a.m., she placed her unsecured bike up against the wall of the restroom and went in for less than a minute. Upon exiting the restroom, the victim saw that her bike was gone. The victim looked around the immediate area and did not see her bike or anyone actually take the bike.

While officers were driving in the 1400 block of Ocean Front Walk, they observed a male subject, later identified as Colby Outlaw, a 45-year-old transient, in possession of a bike that matched the description of the missing bike.

Officers had made contact with him earlier in the morning, and he did not have a bike in his possession at that time.

Outlaw was further questioned in regards to the bike, and he went on to say that he had just purchased the bike from an unknown female.The subject refused to answer any further questions.

The victim positively identified the bike that Outlaw had in his possession as hers. Outlaw was placed under arrest for receiving or concealing stolen property. Bail was set at $1,000.
