Guy sets up his own sting operation to get his stolen bike back Aug 16th 2012, 19:46

[Video Link] The alleged thief’s defense: “I bought this bike from Craigslist. I knew it was stolen, yes. It’s not illegal to by stolen stuff. I LOOKED IT UP, DUDE.”

Guy finds stolen bike on Craigslist 160 miles away, sets up home-made sting, confronts the thief and gets his bicycle back, thief gets felony arrest.

Update: The bike was locked up with a mid-range Kryptonite U-Lock, the thief broke the lock. The lock was never recovered.

We called the cops just before Simon started talking with the thief. It took Seattle PD 45 minutes to get there. Simon decided to confront him when they neglected to show up. Once he did, however, they rolled up as you can see in the video.
