my 16 year old brothers mountain bike was stolen almost 2 months ago. the theiving scum broke into my moms flat and stole it leavin his laptop amongst other things. they was moving out that day and was in the new house. now at lunch time today my brother was on the bus coming back from 6th form and he saw a 14 year old lad that went to the same school as him riding the stolen bike less than 5 minutes drive from them. we found out where he lives and went there. I also phoned the police to meet us there to retrieve it. the lads mother said she bought it 2 months ago for 50 quid and the lad who sold it lives just up the road and told them thats hes had it for over 18 months. we went to the guys house who they bought it off to prove he was lying. the lad was mid 20's with a skinhead and a smackhead complexion. he didnt come to the door he just opened the bedroom window and talked to us that way. might be because im a 19st bodybuilder, when I told him its stolen he kept denying it and said he bought it in jan this year from someone in doncaster. after a slightly heated row i told him to come down and i will only break his hands so he cant rob again. then his scruffy lass started getting mouthy and told us to get off there front garden(council house). i told her to get her fella to come down and make me and if she carries on im gonna slap her aswell. i received a call a few minutes later from the police saying that they cant make it as there busy and they will call me later to advise.
now if it was still with the smackheads and the police couldnt come the bike would have disapearred and no proof that it was ever there,
scumbag 1 - police 0. luckly the family that has it seems decent enough and will give it up to the police once they come. if nowt happens to the smackhead, im gonna get in trouble by the law when i pop down again with a few mates.
we dont have the serial number but the bike was built by a mate of mine so the chances of another one the exact same in the uk is unlikely. it was originally a limited edition gt frame, with bomber forks, blue tioga tyres and other distinguising features including scratches where he came off on it on, originally costing over £700.
