SACRAMENTO (AP) - A Sacramento man is facing prison for stealing
Lance Armstrong's bicycle while the seven-time Tour de France
winner was competing in California.

Sacramento County court documents show 40-year-old Lee Crider is to be sentenced Monday to three years in prison for burglary and theft. He pleaded no contest June 1 to stealing Armstrong's time trial bike and two other bikes from a trailer after the Sacramento prologue to the Tour of California in February.

Another man, 33-year-old Dung Hoang Le of Elk Grove, pleaded no
contest June 1 to receiving stolen property. He has been sentenced to 90 days in jail, to be served on the sheriff's work project.

A police report says he bought Armstrong's $10,000 bike from Crider for $200. He later turned it in to police.
