whatever their reasons for why i was treated in this manner are still quite unclear to me my health was affected as i went from cycling many miles a day to nothing for the time they had my bike perhaps they did believe there may be more stolen goods on the premises but the fact of the matter is there wasnt so yes they did transport my stuff around for no reason so you are right. i have walked away from many a purchase in the past because something did not feel right about the transaction i am glad the bike went back to its original owner as it should. i have had bikes stolen from myself in the past and understand the upset this causes
i guess this has turned into a bit of a witch hunt why dont i post my address and you can all come and dunk me in the local duck pond or burn me at the stake?
Personally, I don't see it as a witch-hunt.
I just think there's something a bit off about it all - either we're not getting the true picture, or you're not explaining it all. There seems more to this than meets the eye - are you known to the police, have you been in trouble with them before? What did they seize? The bike in question, your laptop, and your mobile, or did they seize more than that (other stuff, or other bikes)?
That's all, and that's the only reason I personally have said what I've said - which I'll leave there, as it is - I just can't believe that all they were interested in was one bike that was considered stolen - if that were the case wouldn't they just come 'round and talk to you about that, first, before firing up the Quattro and swooping in with Gene Genie at the fore.
