BEND, OR -- Bend Police arrested a suspected bike thief and investigators continue to search for other stolen property. Matthew Chase, of Bend, is accused of breaking into a locked garage on Northwest Brickyard, on July 14, and taking two high-end bicycles worth about $17,000.

Last week, an officer saw the 32-year-old commit several traffic violations while riding a bike near SE Third and Murphy Rd. After allegedly trying to elude police and resisting arrest, Chase was taken into custody for an outstanding warrant. 
 
The bicycle he was riding at the time of his arrest is one reported stolen from the July burglary. Investigators later executed a search warrant and uncovered several other stolen bikes and other property, drugs and a gun.
 
They continue to look for the other high-end bike (pictured above) taken from NW Brickyard. Anyone with information about the case or the stolen property is asked to call 541-693-6911.
