Three people have been arrested in just two days, part of a Chico police operation aimed at cutting crime in Bidwell Park.
Chico police arrested Paul Oberheim after they caught him with a stolen bike in Lower Bidwell Park Thursday.
The bike had previously been reported stolen at the Chico State Police Department.
The patrols in Lower Park mark the second day in a row officers have patrolled the area in an effort to cut down on recent spikes in bike thefts, drug sales, and pollution.
A patrol in the early morning hours Wednesday netted two arrests, and two camping violations.
Police say the patrols will be occurring regularly.
