At 10 p.m., deputies attempted to make contact with a man, later identified as Crim, who was riding a bicycle south of Jimmie Drive at Hearne Avenue.

A short time later, he was located trespassing inside a property surrounded by a chain link fence in the 3500 block of Devlin Avenue. Crim was detained.
