A THIEF was caught after the victim of a bike robbery noticed his stolen cycle for sale in a Northwich pawn shop.

The incident followed a garage break-in in Carlton Road, Northwich overnight on Friday, January 31.

A bicycle was stolen which the owner then noticed the following Sunday in Cash Generators in Witton Street.

The shop assisted in apprehending a 35-year-old local man for the theft.

He is due before magistrates this month.
