A Cambridge bike thief must carry out 120 hours of unpaid work after he was caught in the act on CCTV.

Ricky Green, of Victoria Road, claimed he took his victim’s Pinnacle Hybrid bike on November 7, 2020, because a ‘friend’ had asked him to collect it.

The 37-year-old went on to sell the bike - worth more than £600 - to another ‘friend’ for between £20 and £30 in cash.

But Green was captured on CCTV, identified by police and arrested.

He pleaded guilty to bike theft and breaching a suspended sentence.

At Cambridge Crown Court on July 9, he was sentenced to a 12-month community order and told to carry out 120 hours unpaid work.

PC Wadsworth said: “We recognise that cycle theft remains a priority for residents of and visitors to Cambridge city and we’re committed to catching those responsible and putting them before the courts.

“We’re also working alongside Camcycle to encourage those who love their bikes to ‘lock it and log it’ to keep their property safe.”
