Man finds his stolen Harley Davidson via Facebook and TwitterAugust 21, 2012 by: Mita Mukherjee
Donald Pyper, a 32 year old from Edinbrough, had his Harley Davidson stolen. The 32 year old resorted to the Twitter and Facebook to recover it back.
Pyper from Edinbrough, Scotland, parked his Harley Davidson at a parking lot just outside his residence when the theft happened. But this man decided to post pictures of his grey Harley on the Facebook and the Twitter first before contacting the police.
Several of the pictures caught attention and people started to report sightings. Amazingly the reports of it being sighted at Silverknowes area, Edinbrough proved to be true and Pyper could recover his bike successfully.
Later on Pyper said, “People kept reporting sightings of the bike around the same areas, so I worked out where it was likely they would be. I stood at the junction of West Shaw Road and Marine Drive, and before long I saw them go past [. . .]
There were three people on the bike, completely overloading it. What made it worse was that one of them was a very young boy, in his early teens at best. Not one of them was wearing a helmet [. . .] Luckily I had an idea where they were going, having found a hiding place nearby earlier that day. Sure enough, the bike had been dumped there when I arrived.”
