According to the Portland Police Bureau, 18-year-old Oleg Stepanovich Plyushchev has been arrested on charges of stealing two bicycles—and then trying to sell them on Craigslist. But apparently bikes weren't Plyushchev's only interest...

From the PPB news release:

After his arrest, detectives learned that Plyushchev was the suspect for the theft of a Nigerian Dwarf Goat in August 2014 after reviewing a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office report.

"Penelope" was reported missing from a residence in the 6800 block of Southeast 122nd Avenue on August 4, 2014. Her owner reported that she was tethered and secured in the front yard and was taken sometime between 3:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.

On August 8, 2014, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office recovered Penelope safe and sound and returned her to the owner. Portland Police detectives reviewed the Sheriff's Office report and learned that Plyushchev put Penelope on consignment at Geren's Farm Supply in Boring, Oregon.
