Default my bike was stolen!

my bike was stolen today after school, someone wanted to have me build one and asked for a test drive... i know very stupid mistake. luckily, he drove right past the school and one of the school cops recognized him. at midnight, it is officially a theft because i let him use it and if i don't get it back then they go bust down that @$$hole's door and lock him up. i am really worried that he will sell it or break it before then. what else can i do? if i get it back broken, what can i do? i have a feeling that his mother can't pay for it...

LOL you're lucky, you know who stole it and even if you get it back broken you're better off than most bike thefts.

Some junkie Bike thieves In New Orleans, cut the cable and stole my first build, an awesome chromed out Huffy/Chinagirl, outta the back of my truck. I was sleeping in my room not 20 feet away. I was all PTSD over it for a while, and now I still lock the sheet outta everything LOL

The police officer that recognized him went to his house and the punk said that he gave it to one of my friends. It might be that someone recognized my bike, most likely he's full of ****. The other option to take care of it is to beat the info out of him, but I would need to find out his name and info from the police.

Sry to hear the bad news.
and sry to say I'm now old and conservative...
IMO, NOT worth it to pick up a battery charge over a chinagirl.
They are a cheap date.
I would go to police station every single day and ask if my bicycle has been recovered.
Be nice about it, but be there.
Every single day...

Good luck to you

I hope you have learned.

That's my greatest fear..going someplace like the store just to come out & find that it was stolen. Guess we don't run errands or take em to work. Just joy ride & keep an eye on them. sorry to hear of your loss.
