Police were called to a home just after 3 p.m. Saturday after the resident says he saw a stranger stealing a bike from his attached garage. He chased the suspect, tackled him to the ground, and held him until police arrived.

The suspect, 24-year-old Christian Calci, told police he "planned to return the bike later." He was arrested on burglary, theft and unlawful possession of meth charges.
