Seventy-eight-year-old Lloyd became a celebrity hoarder when his collection of over 5,000 bikes and bike parts was uncovered in Los Angeles. He faced prison for refusing to part with them. But with a fundraising drive to raise $50,000 and a team of 120, a clear-out is undertaken to save Lloyd.

"He faced prison for refusing to part with them."

Er...

Since when has collecting things been a crime?

Presumably he wasn't using them as get away transport for robberies or chasing kids on them, so why was he facing prison for keeping them...?
