Police: Man arrested when found on stolen bike has ‘long history’ of criminal behavior

Madison police arrested a man Friday in connection with a car break-in last week.

Officers arrested 32-year-old Carlo D. Walkes on College Court, while he was riding what officers believed was a stolen bicycle, according to a release by the Madison Police Department. Police said he had a pry tool and a hunting knife in his pocket, along with several pieces of shattered glass.

Police said he also had a cellphone that didn’t belong to him, a perfume bottle and lots of change.

Walkes was arrested on a probation hold. The Burglary Crime Unit listed him as a person of interest in several recent burglaries and thefts, including a car break-in at an underground parking lot on North Park Street. The unit said he had a “long history” of similar criminal behavior.
