Police arrest man with several warrants during stolen bicycle investigation

RIO VISTA (BCN) — Police arrested a man wanted on multiple warrants after responding to a report of a bicycle theft Sunday afternoon in Rio Vista.

Around 12:10 p.m., officers were flagged down by a resident who said they saw a person riding what they thought might be their stolen bicycle near North Main Street, according to police.

After searching the area, officers spotted a man who matched the description given by the resident. The bicyclist was identified as 37-year-old Vacaville resident Jason Lanyon, police said.

Based on the bicycle’s frame and serial number, officers determined the bike was not stolen. The resident, however, came to the scene and was able to identify the tires and rims on Lanyon’s bicycle as looking the same as those on his stolen bicycle, according to police.

During the investigation, officers discovered Lanyon had four misdemeanor warrants out of Solano County for failure to appear, as well as theft, police said.

Officer booked him into the Solano County jail. Police are continuing to investigate the allegedly bicycle theft and stolen parts.
