Clever Young Woman “Steals” Her Bike Back from Thief Who Advertised It on Facebook


Jenni’s story is the stuff of legends. I assume the POS bastard who stole her bike was a Paki or an African, both of which infest England like so many cockroaches. Both groups are bad about stealing things.

What Jenni did may be foolish, but we can’t let the bad guys win.

That said, taking action like this in the States would be more dangerous than doing it in England.


Bristol cyclist has “stolen” her bike from a thief who advertised it for sale on Facebook.

Jenni Morton-Humphreys, 30, turned the tables on the thief with an ingenious sting, even though she was advised against doing so by the police.

Ms Morton-Humphreys had appealed for help by posting a picture of the stolen bike on Facebook and appealing for help.

A fellow cyclist scoured Facebook’s for sale pages and found the same bike on display.

The good samaritan and Ms Morton-Humphreys devised a cunning plan, which entailed offering to buy the bike from the unsuspecting vendor.

Having found the bike she asked the police to accompany her on the mission and arrest the culprit – but the invitation was declined.

Undeterred she and a friend approached the vendor and arranged a meeting.

“I pretended to be interested and asked silly questions about the bike,” she said. “I said the saddle was too high, and asked if I could get on it to test it out,” she told the Bristol Post.

“I made sure I had nothing on me, no possessions at all apart from the stuff in my hands – and they were a cigarette packet and a set of keys. I handed them to this guy as I got on the bike and said ‘here, hold my stuff’.

She then asked for a test ride. The seller agreed and Ms Morton-Humphreys pedalled away furiously.

To add to her joy, the bike had been smartened up ahead of the sale with even the front light being fixed.

The police were either too politically correct or too cowardly to help a damsel in distress? The Hell with them.

  1. Because they knew the skin colour of the thief. Shitskins often get a freepass like that. That’s why I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with constables, as my father was one as well. Gotta tell you, the stuff that came out of his month at times really makes you wish you never encounter a COP in your life. Other times you’re just glad they are around.

  2. Cops often seem to be on the side of the crooks – not the general public. Crooks pay better bribes than honest citizens, who never pay bribes. England is, or is becoming, some sort of third world hellhole.

  3. Cops are not here to help the average citizen. They are here to take your money and protect the fucking scumbags they collect it for.

  4. I hope the thief never knows where she lives as he may want pay-back.

    Or, if he has any respect for one-upmanship, he may admire her for her determination & leave her alone.

  5. For those of you who are police (first-responder) lovers, know that our police do not care about your stolen bike, or iPhone, or anything else. Too much paperwork/time/trouble on their part. Plus, they will provide the same response to any victim who tries what this young woman victim tried. There are too many muds in America victimizing YT, but the police are too cowed by PC and plain lazy to do anything about it.

  6. Cops are there primarily to enforce the edicts of the State, so far as the State is concerned. Anything else is spare-time activity. Cops were probably too busy manning a speed camera van to deal with trivia like criminal activity.

  7. Good on her, I expect we’ll see a lot more vigilante justice from now on as the police have shown themselves to be enforcers of political correctness and work entirely for the state.

    • Good on her indeed. regrettably, in England, she doesnt have the ‘right’ [according to the occupational government] to defend herself should the poc that stole her stuff decide to assault her. In fact, if she did, SHE would be arrested!
      Only when victims not only take their stuff back, but inflict significant pain on the perps will we see any reduction in this stuff. pain is all they understand.

  8. Not surprising she did this since it’s obvious she liked this bike. Check out the first photo how she stands behind exposing it to a full side view. She wanted those looking at the picture to see the bike first. No doubt it’s eye catching aqua color helped.

    It is surprising police said no considering this was theft. Didn’t even ask for make, model, photos and serial number for the possibility of running into it somewhere, like on the back of someone’s pickup truck during a stop or while patrolling. This doesn’t look like a cheap bike one would buy in a Walmart-like store.

    Finding the bike, catching the person who stole it, might stop other thefts by this thief, but this police department obviously doesn’t think about that.

    I think my local police department would handle it as theft and do what I mentioned above. But, it’s not big city or British.

  9. Cops suck. Don’t let them take your statements. Write your own carefully. Take a picture of it with your I phone and file it and then hand the statement signed by you to the cop.

    They don’t get anything right. Purposefully or because they are stupid.

    End result is that they all suck.
