But the amount of coincidences happening is eerie. Sounds like a Ruskin Bond story

Interesting story! Did you check with the cops if the thief was a repeater with a history?
After all you don't want to let him off lightly if he is a habitual offender.

2008: When my original Pioneer was stolen from Hiranandani Gardens in Mumbai, I bought a 2nd hand (Ex-Scopio) USB/SD card compatible HU for my M800. One fine rainy day I found the passenger door pilfered & detachable faceplate (F/P) & remote missing (My car's 2nd break-in). Seems thief could not pull out the unit in time. Since I liked that system for its USB/SD compatibility, after few days I along with my friend chose to go CHOR BAZAAR & try to source alternate faceplate.
Here lies the fun. We approached many shops with HU in our hand but were always met with curious looks. Later we realised that they had an impression that we had stolen the HU & were now looking for F/P. We were almost done for the day, when were approached by a 9/10 year lad. He took us in a lane & showed us bag full of F/Plates. There among the top few lay the F/P that we were looking for. As I pulled the F/P out, I could not believe that its was my OWN. I remembered some fancy scratching I had done at the back of the F/P once & immediately recognised it. I questioned the boy but he kept no tab of guys he bought such stuff from. When I threatened to take him to the Police Station, He non-chalantly replied "MUJHE TOU WOH AADHEY GHATEY MEIN CHOD DENGE, AAPKO SARA DIN BAY-THAA KE RAKHENGAY" (They will release me in half an hour but will make you sit for full day). I still persisted so he broke done & offered to sell it for Rs 50/-, the price he had paid.
We 'bought' the F/P for Rs 50 but still could not find the remote.
Whoever said that the world is round, I could'nt agree less.
