An Arroyo Grande man has been charged with multiple felonies after police found he had stolen property and drugs with him on Monday, San Luis Obispo police say.

At about 7 a.m. on Aug. 8, a police officer stopped a man on a bicycle on Prado Lane near Elks Rd. for a code violation.

Police say the man gave the officer a fake name, but the officer recognized him from a previous arrest as Jordan Chase Johnson, 38, of Arroyo Grande.

The officer was able to confirm that Johnson had three felony warrants and was riding a stolen bike. The officer searched Johnson and found a collapsible baton and an ID card that was not his own.

The officer arrested Johnson and booked him at the San Luis Obispo County Jail.
