A man has been arrested on suspicion of theft after police found a haul of 15 bikes in his home they believe had been stolen.
The 30-year-old man, from Huntingdon, is alleged to have stolen the bikes before putting them up for sale on the auction site eBay.
Cambridgeshire police received a call from a member of the public who had been a victim of cycle theft and alerted them to they believed to be their bike on the website.
Officers traced the cycle to an address in Huntingdon and found more than 20 items that suspected had been stolen, including 15 cycles.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “We are seeking to identify the owners of the cycles as part of this investigation. Please message us if you believe any of them may be yours.

“Cases such as this highlight the need to take note of your cycles frame number or other unique identifier. This can usually be located on the frame beneath the pedals. Unfortunately, as we have searched our systems, it is apparent that this information is not routinely provided to us when making a stolen report.”
The man was arrested on suspicion of theft and handling stolen goods and has since been released under investigation pending further enquires.
