UK Man Arrested For Charging Bicycle Theft, Savings Arrested By Google Earth

Bicycle storage was found from the home of a detained man in Oxford.

Police in Oxford have arrested a man suspected of stealing more than 500 bicycles. The bicycle storage was found after a police raid on his premises last week. The 54 -year -old man was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and possession of criminal property. Police are in the process of identifying the ownership of the bike found from the man’s property. Thames Valley Police told BBC that a warrant had been issued against the man based on the investigation.

“A 54 -year -old man from Oxford has been arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and possession of criminal property following the execution of a warrant in Littlemore,” Thames Valley Police said in a statement.

The Daily Mail reported that a “500 bike mountain” in the back park of the human property was visible from a Google Earth satellite.


The publication spoke to locals in the area, who said the entire area had been infested with rats due to transportation. Angry neighbors claim savings have increased this week.

Several complaints were filed against the man, who was later released under investigation.

“It’s been going on for about five years,” Colleen Butler, who has lived in the area for 32 years, told The Daily Mail. He added that the man arrested for stealing had moved there a decade ago.

After the incident was reported and police released pictures of the bike, social media users mocked the situation.

“What did he do with all those bikes?” said a user on Twitter. “It relieves me no one saw it earlier,” added another.

Google services like Maps have been used earlier by people for differentiation purposes, who find photos that are not normally visible to the naked eye.
