A common problem for people who sell goods online is finding a picture that shows the product in its best light.
Bike thief Craig Evans, however, was caught out when the police recognised his house décor in his photos on Gumtree.
The 31-year-old carpet fitter admitted stealing over £6,000 worth of bikes at Northallerton Magistrates Court, having targeted the Stokesley area.
Evans took a £3,000 Scott Foil from Stokesley High Street last August 3, and handled a £600 Carrera Kraken mountain bike the following day.
He also took a Cube Analogue and a Giant Anthem from Park Square, Great Ayton, two weeks earlier.
According to the Northern Echo, the thief would wait until the cyclists stopped for food before pedaling away on their bike.
Jailing Evans for 18 weeks, Magistrate Nigel Bacon said: "These would have been distressing offences for the individuals concerned."
