Parents conduct their own sting to get back son's stolen dirt bike
A man and woman from Whitmore Lake were taken into custody Saturday after a couple posed as buyers for their son’s stolen dirt bike, the Daily Press & Argus reported.
Mike and Melissa Adkins of Livingston County’s Cohoctah Township found their 5-year-old son’s stolen dirt bike listed on Craigslist and arranged to meet the seller at a Walmart parking lot in Lyon Township in Oakland County Saturday, the newspaper reported.
When they told the seller the bike was stolen, the man pulled out a knife, but Mike Adkins and some friends who came with him subdued him, according to the report. Oakland County sheriff’s deputies took the man and his girlfriend, who accompanied him to Walmart, into custody, the newspaper reported.
