Found a Stolen Bicycle.

New York, 1895

Curtis DeGrass, aged 13 years, residing on the Merrick road, Jamaica, was arrested Tuesday by Constable Ashmead on suspicion of having stolen two bicycles, one from a son of Oliver Baylis, of the Merrick road, and the other from a boy named Victor. The boy confessed to taking one of the wheels, and it was found in the woods near his home. Some time ago Curtis, with an older brother, stole a number of articles from Union Hall Seminary.
