Jail Sentence & Criminal Behaviour Order For Bike Thief25 Mar 2022
Avon and Somerset Police are the top force in the UK
for detecting bike thieves as they continue to check the
provenance of stolen bikes on BikeRegister as standard
The recent conviction of a prolific bike thief is the latest
success for Avon & Somerset Police in fighting cycle crime, and his sentencing has seen him banned from having a bike in his possession without an original receipt.
Ryan Hack, 21, was sentenced at Bristol Magistrates Court after being convicted of 10 offences committed over a three-month period. He has been jailed for 52 weeks and banned from entering parts of Bristol city
centre for 30 months.
Hack admitted to stealing six bikes in the city between 8 June and 2 September last year. He also pleaded guilty to two counts each of handling stolen goods and going
equipped for theft.
Inspector Adam Dolling said: “Ryan Hack is a prolific bike thief and therefore we welcome the custodial sentence he has received.
Upon his release, he will have to comply with the criminal behaviour order or else he runs the risk of returning to prison. Local officers will be made aware of Hack and the
conditions he must meet so to help protect
We hope the Police investigation and court sentencing provides the people of Bristol with reassurance that we continue to tackle the issue of bike thefts and will seek justice through the courts against offenders.”
