OCEANSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A bicycle stolen from Junior Seau's Oceanside home days after the former NFL star's suicide has been recovered, police said.
An unidentified woman called police Wednesday after seeing a bicycle that matched the description of the one that was stolen from Seau's garage on May 7, said Oceanside police Lt. Leonard Mata.
Police confirmed it was the stolen bicycle and contacted the man in possession of it. He told police he bought the bike from an unidentified man in Oceanside on May 8. The man with the bike was ruled out as a suspect.
The crook had taken a $500 bicycle belonging to a friend of Seau and left through the garage door, Mata said.
"Somehow they forced the doggy door open so they squeezed through," he said.
No arrest had been made as of Wednesday.
