Man steals back his stolen bike
This crazy story would not be possible without the internet, more specifically Craigslist. Danny Lesh, a man from the D.C. area, had his bike stolen overnight from a friend's house after he had loaned it to them. The next morning, the man noticed his exact bike being listed for sale on Craigslist. He called the seller and arranged a meeting, and asked for a test ride after haggling the price. However instead of test driving the bike, he drove it right to a waiting cab; he threw it in the trunk and drove off, successfully stealing back his stolen bike. The man who stole the bike called Lesh back a half hour later, threatening to call the police. This never happened, probably because the guy made a living off of selling stolen bikes and clearly wouldn't want the police involved.
