A bicycle stolen from Junior Seau's Oceanside home days after the former NFL star's suicide has been recovered, police said.

JUNIOR SEAU: 1969-2012

Take a look back at the career of the former All-Pro linebacker.

An unidentified woman called police Wednesday after seeing a bicycle that matched the description of the one that was stolen from Seau's garage on May 7, said Oceanside police Lt. Leonard Mata.

Police confirmed it was the stolen bicycle and contacted the man in possession of it. He told police he bought the bike from an unidentified man in Oceanside on May 8. The man with the bike was ruled out as a suspect.

The crook had taken a $500 bicycle belonging to a friend of Seau and left through the garage door, Mata said.

''Somehow they forced the doggy door open so they squeezed through,'' he said.

No arrest had been made as of Wednesday.

Seau, 43, shot himself to death in the home on May 2.

''I just think it's horrible someone would even break into someone's house after a tragedy like that,'' a neighbor, Terra Ramirez, told TV station KGTV (http://bit.ly/KNer2P).

Seau was a mainstay of the San Diego Chargers' defense in the 1990s after starring at Southern California.
