I might be screwed

I need help of someone thats good with legal stuff. So last night i got arrested. And ther town took my bike, and is using it an investigation. The cop said 3 scenarioesoculd happen, they could remove the stoeln property on the bike(grips) and reutrn it to me. The could return it to me after the trial. Or the town will take it because it help aid me in the theft of bike grips and a skateboard deck, and auction it off. Can they do this? If they do this will be 3 bikes I lost to the town of Barre, MA(2 were stolen). And im up sh*ts creek cause my dad said that he wont buy me a bike if they take it away(even though my birthday is 3 weeks away, and they will end up anyway). Right now im in the process of building my hoop d to hold me off. Not liek im going anywhere anyway cause im grounded for 2 months.

I've said before that the average Jerry's Kid has more brainpower than FTC, and I do believe that this more than confirms it.

If I understood you, you're a kid that got caught with stolen property, and it was confiscated. I don't see a problem (??!)

Get a part-time job or arrange with your Dad to work around the house for allowance money, and buy a legitimate, not hot bike when you can.

not to be a pain in the A, but what goes around comes around.

you took from people, and now they took from you.

an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, you got what you deserved.

Better question, why is it the kid who claims to have a great job, a nice car, wants to put disc brakes on his bike, and has a family that can obviously afford an internet connection needs to steal grips?

Answer, FIVE finger discount. While its was a stupid idea, Im sure theres people in these forum that have made a mistake like this. Heres the thing. Everything on that bike was mine. Except for the grips. I did have a job, but the was bailing hay. Seeing how I live in New England, and spring just started, I dont have a job right now. I never wanted to put disk brakes on my bike either, nor do i own a car.

A "mistake" would be walking out of the store with something, realizing it, and then going back in to pay for it.

You didn't make a mistake.

No no no, Beerman you've got him confused with that racersk66 guy or what ever, and FTC didnt steal 2 bikes before, he had them stolen from him. the only thing he took were grips. I think this is stupid and i dont think they are acctualy allowed to take your whole bike. They should just make you pay for the grips you took from the shop and maybe a fine or the shop my ban you for a while or they could make u do some comunity sevice but i doubt that would happen. I don't think they are allowed to take your whole bike though

I've never stolen a bike in my life unless i had to(pink girls mtn bike to get home). Im saying I'vbe had 2 bikes stolen from me in that town. And the town is probably taking my bike from me. It doesnt matter to me what some guy on bikeforums who 3000 miles away thinks of me. It was a stupid thing of me to do. I know that now. People learn from their mistakes. Am I pissed at the cops? No, Im mad at myself for stealing, and having my bike tooken away. Now all I have to start from is, 99 GT Performer, and $50. What I've decided to do is yard work, house chores, in exchange for some money, and save up like $300 and buy one of those danscomp parts packages. And put the parts on the performer frame.

Glad to hear you take responsibility, and hope you're able to get the money for a new bike build. Did you manage to return the pink bike too?

Jesus you're dumb. If you don't have a way home stealing someones bike isn't a "have to". What if that girl who owned that bike didn't bring here bike that day, and you did, and she decided to steal your bike to get home because she "had to"? With the roles reversed, does that situation make sense to you, or seem right?

You're a dumbass. You shouldn't get your bike back, because the only way you'll learn a lesson is for it to suck major. If all you had to do was pay for the grips, you had zero penalty. The cops should give your bike to the shop. They should let you buy it back for 10-20x the value of those grips. Don't like the penalty? Don't do the crime. It's ******* like you that give BMXers everywhere a bad name. Dumbass.

I'm sure they have a right to confiscate your bike as it had stolen property attached to it. You should know better, just as you should know not to ask for legal advice here. Chances are you may not get your bike handed back to you, but you'll be able to buy it back at a police auction.

I'll sit back and enjoy the irony of that.

buddy buddy...why would you steal 10 dollars grips and a damn skateboard deck? you should have thought before you did what you did. but I feel for you FTC, i do hope you get your bike back. But as to what you did....I don't really have anything to say.

I still dont understand why you stole grips that you could most certainly afford...and even worse a SKATE DECK. Stick with bmxing. Good luck and hope you get your bike back.

Jon.
