SAN ANTONIO – A suspect identified as Lequan Fields, 22, has been arrested on a theft charge stemming from a case that involves items which were stolen from two disabled veterans, according to an arrest affidavit. 

The affidavit stated that San Antonio police investigators found evidence showing that Fields pawned a $3,000 bicycle which was customized to accommodate a disabled veteran. 

The woman told police her bicycle was stolen when someone burglarized her car on April 7. 

Police said the burglar also took a garage door opener from the vehicle at that time and gained access to the home that the woman shares with her husband, also a disabled vet. 

The burglar stole a rifle from the home that had been donated to the husband by a group who takes veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder on hunting trips, the affidavit stated. 

When detectives questioned Fields about the stolen bicycle, they said that he told them he pawned it for someone else, the affidavit stated. 

They said he initially agreed to help them with the case but later stopped cooperating, the affidavit stated 

Fields was booked into jail on Wednesday.
