Teen charged for allegedly stealing bicycle, lying to police

Police investigating an alleged theft of a bicycle has charged a teenager from Cappoon's Bay, Tortola, for theft and giving false information.
According to reports reaching our newsroom, a resident of the said community on September 19, 2020, proceeded to leave for work using a bicycle he had for over three years when he discovered it was missing.

Subsequently, the man visited the home of a friend when he noticed the wheels of his bicycle in the back yard of the friend’s residence.

After investigating, it was learnt that an 18 year old, who spent a night at the property the bicycle was taken from, was seen by several persons in the neighborhood riding a bicycle.

The matter was reported to police, who approached the accused; however, the teen provided a “false name” to investigators.

The teen’s mother subsequent provided his correct name; however, the accused denied stealing the bicycle, even though he admitted to spending the night at the property where the bicycle went missing.

The 18-year-old will have his day in court soon.
