Such is taken who thought they took: a mother recognizes her son’s bike on Facebook and “summons the police” to trap the thief seller in Elbeuf.
You don’t ride like that with a mother whose son has had his bike stolen! Recognizing him on the Facebook MarketPlace, she decides to make an appointment with the seller in the town of Elbeuf.
She took the opportunity to notify the Rouen BAC police officers who then set up a surveillance system. They then spot two young men, one of which matches the seller’s profile picture. An identity check confirms that it is indeed him, since the smart little one uses his real name on social networks.
