The 38-year-old reported to the police that someone had stolen his bicycle. It turned out that no theft had taken place. According to the officers from Nakło nad Notecią (Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship), the man simply wanted to use their presence to drive him to the gas station. He will now appear in court for making a false report.
Commissioner Justyna Andrzejewska, press officer of the Poviat Police Headquarters in Nakło nad Notecią, reports that in recent days the police department received information about the theft of a two-wheeler, which was supposed to take place in one of the villages.
– The police learned from the reporting person who is supposed to have his bike. The uniforms directed their steps to the indicated address, where they quickly determined that no theft had taken place, and the bicycle on the property did not belong to the reporting party, describes the policewoman.
Police: He wanted them to take him to a gas station
Andrzejewska adds that after these findings, the man’s version has changed. – He stated that he was not sure about his application, and that the uniforms were supposed to take him to the gas station in general – he said.
As it turns out, the 38-year-old was not the first time he called the police patrol, “wanting to use him as a free taxi”. Now he will answer for it. – Police officers will file a motion to the court to punish him for unsubstantiated reporting. This offense is punishable by imprisonment, restriction of liberty or a fine of up to PLN 1,500.
