    Police in Pleasanton are searching for the owners of two bicycles  believed to have been stolen by a serial bike thief who was arrested  Wednesday.

    Undercover officers made contact with 30-year-old Pleasanton  resident Zachary Royer after a victim reported his bike stolen and later saw  it listed for sale by Royer on Craigslist, according to Pleasanton police.

    Royer was allegedly in possession of three other bikes believed to  have been stolen, and investigators have yet to identify the owners of two of  them.

    The bikes are described as a men's 21-speed mountain bike and a  men's 1-speed mountain bike. Anyone who had a similar bike stolen can call  Pleasanton police Detective Michael Rossillon at 925-931-5100.

    Royer, who has been convicted in another county for possessing and  selling stolen bikes under similar circumstances, was arrested and booked at  Santa Rita Jail.

    Police are reminding bike owners to register with the City of  Pleasanton for easier identification in the event a bicycle is stolen and  found.
