So now what is going to happen?

The most random thing happen to my son today.  He works for snapon and has account at various places in the city, bus depots, schools etc.  He was just about to get in his car and saw this guy get on a motor bike which looked a lot like his that was stolen two years ago.  He spoke to the guy and told him he used to have a bike just like that and the guy sped off and was immediately stopped by two cops.  Gords ran up to the cops and they of course asked him what was up, he told them it was his bike he was 100% sure.  Well they cuffed the bike rider and some other guy and had Gords ride the bike back to the precinct with police escort because he had no helmet. Sure enough, it was his bike that was stolen two years ago and these guys were trying to ship it off to Puerto Rico.  

Gords says the bike is trashed - been crashed etc. He looked after that thing like a baby.  Insurance paid out, so what happens now?  Apparently the cops told him he can take it.

Yeah, what Kzoo said, though, after taking a good look at it, they may not want it.

So, SoS works for SnapOn? Cool gig!

 

I'd never bring a paycheck home if I worked for them.

​He's one of their top sales people in the country.  His goal in life is to make money and he has the gift of the gab - so he does very well!

I agree with Kzoo.  Doing the right thing goes a long way. 

​That's what I told him - contact the insurance Co.  just wondered if anyone had experience making a claim and then recovering stolen item.

Just what are the odds of somebody riding a stolen bike around for two years and

crossing paths of the guy it was stolen from and

having the cops immediately nearby to stop the thieves AND

the cops managing to stop them and arrest them?

If there ever was at anytime anybody who should buy a bunch of lottery tickets, it's your son.  And he should give them to you!

SQ, I have heard of stories like this that the insurance company would just tell the original owner to keep to vehicle.  I'm sure it's based on value.  What is the insurance company going to do with a damaged bike.  They have to deal with the title, they have to store it for a bit, they then have to sell it or auction it.  All that takes money and they aren't really in that business.  If the hassle/expenses come close to the value of the bike they will probably tell him to keep it.
