HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) – A suburban Portland sheriff’s spokesman says deputies investigating a stolen bicycle have recovered more than 100 packages that are also believed to have been stolen. Two people have been arrested.

Washington County sheriff’s Sgt. Bob Ray said Friday that the owner of a stolen $6,000 bicycle advised deputies on Thursday that the bike was advertised for sale online. Deputies responded to a suburban Beaverton address, recovered the bike and arrested a man and a woman.

When deputies went to the man’s residence, they found what Ray described as “about 100 items that were undoubtedly stolen,” including boxes of shoes, boots, car parts, clothing and jewelry. Many had delivery labels with addresses all over Washington County and were confirmed as stolen.

Ray says 27-year-old Nicklas Rocha has been arrested for investigation of first-degree theft and criminal mischief. Kathryn Carley has been arrested for investigation of criminal conspiracy and heroin possession. Both are from Portland.
