A man has been sentenced to four months for stealing a bike in Shanghai. The convict surnamed Tao stole the bicycle of a bike-sharing company from the roadside and carried it home on a tricycle where he used a saw to cut the lock on Dec 25. The shared bike was valued at 2,265 yuan (9.31).

The Jinshan District People's Court sentenced him for four months with five-month probation and fined him 2,000 yuan.

Tao, who was summoned by police on Dec 28, confessed to his crime. “It's all because of greed. I saw that the bike was parked on the side of the road for nearly 15 days and I decided to take it home,” he said.

In Dec, Shanghai Minhang District People's Court sentenced a man surnamed Han for three months with three-month probation and a fine of 1,000 yuan for stealing a shared bike in Sept.

In Xiamen, a woman was ordered 10 days detention for painting a yellow shared bike blue in an effort to hide its ownership and keep it illegally.
