Man arrested for selling stolen bike back to owner
A Basel man has been arrested after he tried to sell a stolen bike back to its proper owner.
The 25-year-old is thought to have taken at least 300 bikes and was selling them online.
A woman spotted her stolen bike on a website and arranged to meet up to buy it back – but she told the police.
Investigations show the man had stolen hundreds of bikes from June last year. It may be more, say the police.
