Man arrested for stealing motorbike - bit-by-bit

Police in China arrest crafty factory worker after five-year theft

POLICE IN CHINA have charged a man for stealing a motorcycle - part by part from the factory where he worked.

The assembly line worker told Police he'd always wanted his own motorbike but could never afford one on the lowly wages he received.

Over a five-year period the man whipped parts from the warehouse. Once complete he began to use the bike to commute to and from work.

But, luck wasn't on the light-fingered worker's side; he was stopped by police who discovered that he had no driving licence or paperwork.

The man admitted theft and was fined the equivalent of £440, put on probation for a year, and ordered to return the complete motorcycle to the factory.

That'll teach him.
