we brought you at five. a bike stolen from shannon, now back at home with its owners... its connected to a string of burglaries also connected to nettleton. wtva's rebecca butcher spoke with the family and joins us live now. this suspect has taken everything from motorcycles in nettleton, but here in shannon i spoke to a child who had his bike taken...and he actually spoke to the suspected thief beforehand. the ball at us corey tiggs "he said y'all need an all-time quarter back and he was trying to throw the ball at us and he didn't." 10-year-old corey tiggs tells me tevin brown played football with him and some kids in the neighborhood, before his bike turned up missing. "we looked around the house couldn't find it and made a report on it." the bike was takenlast month, and was a christmas present a couple of years ago. corey's dad tells me for the family, it was a surprise. "it's some type of stealings and stuff going around but i didn't think it was to that magnitude." corey, now with his bike back says he suspected something was off with the man who claimed to be an all-time quarter back... "it's kind of not right. when we were playing football, he wasn't throwing the ball he was looking at the back of our yard the whole time and then we had to wait a few minutes before he threw the ball at us." most items stolen in the area have been recovered from local pawn shops. meanwhile the suspect was charged here with two counts of felont burglary and three counts of petty larceny. reporting live in shannon, rebecca butcher wtva nine news police in blue mountain
