No matter the amount of time police arrest some people for theft, they just can’t get enough of it. Such was the case with a man from Francisco in the United States who was arrested by the authorities for stealing vehicles for, shockingly, 13 times in barely 18 months.
The car thief was caught riding a stolen classic bike, making it his 13th arrest in barely 18 months
According to the information retrieved from the Twitter account of the San Francisco Police Department Tenderloin Station, the person in question has an infamous reputation for stealing vehicles and motorcycles and was spotted recently with a classic bike. This, however, alerted the police controlling the traffic that stopped him and arrested him right on the spot.
Here is the tweet from the police department confirming the arrest.
Yesterday we booked a prolific vehicle/motorcycle thief after TL cops spotted him on this motorcycle near Hyde/GG. The MC was reported stolen earlier in the @SFPDCentral District.

According to a statement released recently by the San Francisco Media Relation Unit, the man was arrested by officers on duty while he was riding the bike around 11:52 am on the 1st of December 2020. The bike was later found to be a stolen one after series of investigation. The 31-year-old car thief was identified as Eric Sheridan who will now be charged with vehicle theft, illegal possession of stolen properties, illegal possession of a controlled substance and a license plate display violation.
Meanwhile, here is the video showing car thieves caught on camera. Watch the clip below:
Bad Car Thieves
Nevertheless, the police are yet to share full details about Sheridan’s latest theft but from the image shared on the Internet, the last car he stole was a black Triumph. There is little doubt that when such a serial car theft is released, he won’t go back to commit the same crime.
