This is fantastic news, Ben!
And you are saying they fitted a new chain and stuff on your son's Islabike? Or have I misunderstood that.
Also you don't mention whether the retrieved haul included the still twitching heart[s] of the thieving vermin. Sorry about that last bit but I'm still a card carrying member of "Team hang 'em and flog 'em"!

Police just doing their job.
Raided a place (house) found them and many others as far as I can gather. Mine where the first to identify as they stood out in the sea of black to white and shades of.
Policeman remembered the record and pictures I had sent.
Oddly even the small bright but single prominent logo on the glossy black Alu-O stood out.

So if you want a bike back, make sure there is something easy to notice on it.

P.S. using the name calling 'retard' is much like the name calling 'nigger' it is quite offensive ...
