At around 3:30AM on Wednesday, January 14, 2015, MVPD officers were on foot patrol in the Rengstorff Park area. While there, they came across two individuals and four bicycles. One of the subjects fled on foot, but the subject who remained was identified as Nicholas Mathas, a 23 year-old out of San Jose. Suspect Mathas was subsequently arrested for Receiving Stolen Property (Penal Code 496) and Probation Violation (Penal Code 1203.2).
We are trying to identify the owners of these bicycles, which we believe were stolen from the area. If one of these bicycles is yours, please contact Officer Annino and reference case number 15-239 at 650-903-6344.
