A Guy's Pile of Stolen Bikes Was So Big, You Could See It on Google Maps
Cops in England raided a guy's house after hearing he might have some stolen bikes in his backyard. And it turned out he had a pile so big, you could see it in satellite images on Google Maps. It appears to be hundreds of bikes.
When you're breaking the law, being able to see the evidence from OUTER SPACE is less than ideal
Police in England raided a 54-year-old guy's house this month after they got a tip he might be in possession of some stolen bicycles.
And it turned out he had so many of them, you could see the pile in his backyard in SATELLITE images on Google Maps.
It's not clear how many bikes it is. But there's another photo police took, and it looks like hundreds. His entire backyard is full of them piled on top of each other.
People who live in the area claim the pile had been there for years and kept getting bigger.
He's facing charges for possession and handling of stolen goods. Cops have now started the process of trying to track down all the owners.
