BERLIN — A man accused of stealing a bicycle at the Berlin Train Station has confessed to the crime, according to police.

Hours after police posted a surveillance image seeking information about the theft on June 25, the suspect called police. Police have recovered the bike and said they needed a warrant for the unnamed suspect’s arrest.

According to police, the man was dropped off at the Berlin Train Station around 8 a.m. last Tuesday, and he immediately made his way to the platform.

Police said the man then made his way down to the south staircase where someone had secured their bike to the railing.

Cameras at the station captured the man using large bolt cutters to break the lock on the bike, and then ride off, according to police.
