LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska linebacker Josh Banderas told campus police he and a member of the men's track team planned to sell the bicycles they stole from racks near university housing units, according to a document released Wednesday.

Banderas and Keifer were arrested Monday after a man called police to report that he was watching two men cut bike locks and load bikes into the bed of a pickup. Lincoln police apprehended Banderas and Keifer in a pickup on the northeast side of campus. Seven mountain bikes were in the back of the pickup.

Banderas and Keifer were charged with felony theft by unlawful taking between $500 and $1,500. Each was released from jail after posting a $3,500 bond.

Officer Aaron Pemberton wrote in a probable cause affidavit that Banderas "stated they took the bikes because he saw signs posted on the racks that UNL would cut the bikes after a certain date and take them as abandoned property." Banderas told police the plan was to sell the seven bikes over the Internet on eBay, Craiglist or similar websites.
