Man accused of stealing bikes from San Antonio area college campuses
Police linked Kevin Davis, 43, to thefts at three campuses
A suspected bicycle thief has been arrested thanks to an alert campus police officer at Trinity University.
An arrest warrant affidavit stated the officer spotted Kevin Davis, 43, loitering around a bike rack on campus on Sept. 25 and stopped to question him.
When he asked him for identification, Davis went to retrieve it from his car.
The affidavit stated that the officer noticed a set of bolt cutters inside the vehicle as well as a bike cable lock that had been cut and some marijuana.
Davis also had several pawn shop receipts on him at the time, the affidavit stated.
Campus police along with San Antonio police officers later executed a search warrant at Davis’ home.
They said they found eight bicycles throughout his home, most of which were in his attic, the affidavit stated.
Police said the bikes were stolen not only from Trinity University, but also UTSA and Texas State University in San Marcos.
At least one of them was valued at about $800. Davis was taken into custody at that time on outstanding warrants.
Charges were filed against him in connection with the bike thefts on Tuesday.
