A MAN has been jailed for six months following a spree of bicycle thefts from railway stations.
John Chaplin, 58, of Ryedene Close, Basildon, pleaded guilty to four counts of theft of a cycle.
Heading straight for the bike sheds, he would use bolt croppers, concealed in his rucksack, to cut the chains holding the bikes to the cycle racks before removing them and leaving the station.
