BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A man has confessed to a bike burglary in the Alabama Hill Neighborhood.

Lieutenant Bob Vanderyacht says 24-year-old Devyn Juvonen ran when a Bellingham Police officer first tried to contact him early Monday.

Juvonen dropped a backpack filled with items that linked him to a burglary on Erie Street.

The same officer caught Juvonen on Texas Street early the next morning.

He told officers he was stealing to support his drug habit, and that he traded some of the bikes to his roommate in exchange for drugs.

Both men have been booked into Whatcom County Jail.
