Melissa Cardenas Learned That A Bicycle Is Not The Getaway Vehicle Of Choice When Trying To Steal Computers

Mesa, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) - Melissa Cardenas, a 31-year-old Arizona woman was arrested Thursday after she was allegedly caught peddling away from a burglary on a bicycle while holding a computer she had just stolen.

According to Mesa Police, an officer became suspicious after watching a man and a woman bicycle past him while carrying what seemed to be unusually large items.

Investigators say the officer stopped Cardenas, however the male suspect skirted around a building and was able to flee the scene.

Cardenas was found holding a computer with loose power cables attached that the officer identified as stolen from a nearby H&R Block office. One cable appeared to have been cut.

After checking the H&R Block office, investigators determined that burglars had broken a window to gain access to the premises and several computers and computer hardware were stolen. Burglary tools, and another bicycle that had been reported stolen were found at the scene.

Cardenas stated that she acted alone and denied allegations that there was an accomplice.

Cardenas was booked into jail on charges of commercial burglary and possession of drug paraphernalia.
