EAGLE POINT, OR (KPTV) - The West may not be as wild as it once was, but a southern Oregon town got a taste of some good old-fashioned cowboy justice Friday morning.
A man and his horse happened to be in the right place at the right time to thwart a would-be thief outside a Walmart store in Eagle Point.
KOBI-TV reported a woman was walking out of the store around 10:00 a.m. Friday when she saw a man take off with her bike.
When she began yelling, a man with a horse trailer jumped into action, taking the horse out of the trailer and going after the thief.
The cowboy then used a lasso to catch the suspect and held him there until police arrived.
KOBI reported the suspect, Victorino Sanchez, was booked into the Jackson County Jail on a theft charge.
Police said the bike was returned to its owner.
