ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany police are still on the lookout for a couple of thieves, who were prevented from selling a stolen bicycle by an alert WALB fan.

The expensive road bike was stolen from a Kirt Phillips' storage shed at his Cumberland Lane home a little after 4 a.m. Tuesday.

We posted a picture of the bike and a surveillance shot of the crooks on walb.com. When two men tried to sell the bike at Mega Pawn, an employee recognized it from our web story and confronted the men. They took off.

Police returned the bike to Phillips who posted a thank you to WALB on his Facebook page.
