“I use a rope every day, that’s how I make my living. If it catches cattle pretty good, it catches a bandit pretty good.”
(Eagle Point Police Department FB) Oregon rancher Robert Borba was at the Eagle Point [Wal Mart] store loading dog food and a camping tent into his truck when he heard a woman screaming that someone was trying to steal her bike.
The 28-year-old quickly got his horse, Long John, out of its trailer. He grabbed a rope, rode over to the man who was reportedly struggling with the bike gears and attempting to flee on foot.
Borba lassoed the man around the legs and when he dropped, Borba dragged him to one end of the parking lot.
[…] Eagle Point police Sgt. Darin May said officers arrived and found the lassoed man and bike on the ground in the parking lot. Police arrested Victorino Arellano-Sanchez (story)
