PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland man who has been arrested nearly 100 times is now serving two and a half years in jail for stealing a bait bike.

Leroy Parsons, 48, was sentenced Monday.

Parsons was arrested in November after he stole a bait bike, a bike that allows officials to track its whereabouts.

The bait bike was placed by a film crew from the TV show “Inside Edition” with help from Portland police.

According to court documents, Parsons has been arrested about 98 times. Officials also said Parsons has spoken with police at least 200 times.

Parsons must get permission from his parole officer to own a bike once he his released from jail.
