A man who tried to sell a motorcycle he allegedly stole and was reported missing by the Police on a popular social media App, has been arrested and jailed by the Police.
According to the report by CBS, the popular app used by thousands of people to buy and sell items unexpectedly helped the police in the arrest of the suspect identified as Kevin Watson.
The Butts county Police reporting the incident said Kevin Watson was looking to sell a motorcycle on the thrifting app Offer Up, but instead found himself in the backseat of a squad car. It started when Watson posted the motorcycle on the app to sell it in the parking lot of Southlake Mall. Certainly, the listing piqued the curiosity of many, but none quite like the chief of police of Butts County. According to the chief, the bike had been stolen.

He was quickly arrested and the bike was detained. When officers ran the VIN number it was confirmed that it was the stolen motorcycle.
