Teen 'detective' leads police to stolen bike

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - Police in suburban Westchester County said a 13-year-old's detective work led them to a 17-year-old accused of stealing a $2,275 mountain bike. Scarsdale police said the bike was stolen while its 13-year-old owner was inside a village deli.

The boy searched the Internet and found a bike that fit the description of his for sale on eBay. He gave the information to investigators.

A detective posing as a potential buyer arranged to meet the bike's seller in White Plains. Police arrested the 17-year-old on charges of felony criminal possession of stolen property.
The 17-year-old was freed without bail to his parents and is due in City Court on October 1st. There was no telephone listing for the teen's address.

The lesson I've learned from this is to not buy your 13 year old a bicycle that costs more than my first two cars combined.
