Police: Rancher lassos bike thief outside Oregon Walmart

EAGLE POINT, Ore. » Police say a rancher jumped on his horse and lassoed a man who was trying to steal a bicycle in the parking lot of an Oregon Walmart.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports 28-year-old Robert Borba was at the Eagle Point store getting dog food today when he heard a woman screaming that someone was trying to steal her bike.

The rancher says he quickly got his horse out of its trailer, grabbed a rope, rode over and lassoed the man and bicycle.

Eagle Point police Sgt. Darin May says officers arrived and found a lassoed man and bike on the ground in the parking lot.

Police arrested Victorino Arellano-Sanchez, whom they described as a transient from the Seattle area, on a theft charge.

Arellano-Sanchez is jailed in Jackson County. Staff members at the jail say they don’t think he has an attorney.
