It gets really good if you buy bikes via the 'Operation Bumblebee' scheme, where the MET. auction off unclaimed bikes. My son bought quite few like this a couple of years ago to do up and sell. Until one day when I had just arrived home from the hairdresser and the doorbell went and I opened it to eight of the Met's finest standing there! They asked for an 'Adam' I said no sorry we don't have one of those, then they asked for 'Margaret'  no I said none of those either, at which point my youngest son came down the stairs to see what was going on. The Inspector then said they had a search warrant for stolen bikes! I said yes we have bikes out in the garage but they have been bought from 'Bumblebee', and we had all the proof of purchase, at which point he blanched slightly. However all eight officers entered, and I said how lucky they were as I had only just come in, doesn't matter was the response we were going to break the door down! During this my husband had arrived home coming in from the garage at the back, so I said they were welcome to see all the stuff we had regarding purchase and also examine the bikes, most of which still had police tags on them. I also told them that they ought to know that my husband was a Magistrate - which elicited the response -'Oh sh*t'. Anyway they saw the bikes, were very happy that everything was above board and went on their merry way. When we got around to looking at the warrant we found that it was for a drug search! So even had they found something dodgy they'd have been out of luck as the warrant was wrong. It seemed that someone thought they'd seen their bike on e-bay and reported it which led to this! Would that they moved as quickly when crimes are committed.
