A 41-year-old man has been charged with four counts of receiving stolen goods following a spate of bicycle thefts. He is accused of receiving four stolen mountain bikes worth £2,175 at Thornton, on April 30. One of the bikes is alleged to have been stolen from a garden in Dorchester Close, Wigston, on November 3, last year. The second was allegedly taken from a back garden in Twickenham Road, on Leicester's Eyres Monsell estate, on October 25. Another was apparently stolen from Station Road, Wigston, on March 5 this year – and the fourth allegedly burgled from a shed in Meadowsweet Road, Hamilton, Leicester, on April 6 this year. The accused is due to appear at Leicester Magistrates' Court next month.
