Cowboy Lassos Thief at Walmart [View all]

June 10, 2016

Eagle Point, Oregon – A bicycle thief in the Walmart parking lot never expected swift justice from the past. At approximately 10:00 am, an unidentified woman walked out of Walmart and saw a man riding away on her bicycle. She yelled at passersby to stop the thief and one man sprang into action. The cowboy, who happened to have a saddled horse in his trailer, unloaded the horse and chased the thief. The cowboy’s aim was sure and the lasso landed the thief in jail.

Police arrested Victorino Sanchez on suspicion of theft and booked him in the county jail.
