PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities suspect a Portland, Oregon, man accused of stealing two bicycles also took a dwarf goat.

Police say the 18-year-old, Oleg Stepanovich Plyushchev, tried to sell bikes on Craigslist that had been stolen from a backyard and garage.

Investigators say that following Plyushchev’s arrest Tuesday, detectives learned he was connected to the theft of a dwarf goat named Penelope that was taken from its owner’s yard.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/8HoA1w ) the man had put Penelope on consignment sale in August at a farm supply store in Boring. Penelope was recovered by Clackamas County sheriff’s deputies.

Plyushchev was booked Tuesday on theft and computer crime charges. He was released Wednesday without bail pending a court appearance.
