Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man is facing charges after the owner of a stolen bicycle found the item listed for sale on Craigslist.

An arrest report says the serial number of the TREK bike Joseph Beckman tried to sell matched one that had been reported stolen in September. Louisville Metro Police found the bike, valued at $1,300, in Beckman's house.

Beckman, 37, told LMPD he brought the bike from another person on Craigslist in late spring.

LMPD charged Beckman with receiving stolen property. The report says Beckman has pending charges for shoplifting.
