While patrolling in the area of Lincoln Blvd and Navy St. officers saw a bicyclist riding along the sidewalk in violation of a Santa Monica Municipal Code and with no light during darkness.  Officers stopped the bicyclist for the violations.  A search of his backpack led to the recovery of a machete concealed in his backpack and a methamphetamine smoking pipe.  The subject was taken into custody. Charles Anthony West, 32, homeless, was arrested for riding bicycle on a sidewalk, possession of narcotics paraphernalia and a probation violation.  Bail was set at $20,000.
