Just setting off with a bike strapped to roof, reverse out of space and set off only to be immediately flagged down by aforementioned scrote, carrying a Sports Direct bag:
Scrote: I see you're into bikes *eyes rather expensive bike on roof*, want to buy some disk brakes? *holds up bag*
Me: Naw *drives off*
So I stop around the corner and can't remember the non emergency number for the cops. I turn around and go looking for him to see which way he went, can't see him, so assume he went through the park. So I drive to the cop shop and give them a description and location and head off for my ride.
Obviously this **** knows roughly where I live now, which really pisses me off. The bikes are now in the house.
What, if anything, could I have done differently? Can members of the public detain someone under suspicion of handling stolen goods?
Glad I'm putting the house on the market soon.
