Canadian woman steals back stolen bicycle
OTTAWA, Province of Ontario (AFP) - A Vancouver woman earned widespread notoriety on Tuesday for stealing back her bicycle from a thief after seeing it advertised online.
Ms Kayla Smith, 33, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that her C$1,000 (S$1,217) bicycle was taken from a rack in Vancouver's oceanfront Olympic Village - constructed to host athletes during the 2010 Winter Games and now a bustling neighbourhood.
Ms Smith filed a police report.
The next day, she spotted an ad on the classified advertisements website Craigslist for a bike that looked suspiciously like hers, so she contacted the seller and arranged to meet him in a nearby McDonald's parking lot, posing as a buyer.
