Asian Beauty:Kirari.K | Bike thief nabbed after victim buys stolen part on Net auction

A man who stole an expensive bicycle and sold the parts on an Internet auction site was apprehended after the victim bought one of the parts and confirmed that it belonged to him, police said.
Arrested was Yuichi Sato, 30, a resident of Sapporo's Kita-ku. He reportedly admitted having stolen the bicycle.
"It was big so I sold it," he was quoted as telling police. "I made about 50,000 yen."
Investigators said Sato stole the bicycle, valued at about 150,000 yen, from a bicycle parking area in Sapporo's Kita-ku at about 10 a.m. on July 1 by cutting the lock.
He later put the bicycle up for sale on the Internet. The owner, a 21-year-old student, noticed the ad and made a successful bid for the handlebars. Judging from the way the tape was wound around them, he confirmed that the handlebars were from his stolen bicycle and contacted police.
There are reportedly only three bicycles of the same make, size and color in Japan.
