A twist of fate.

Two men were arrested on Saturday after they were caught selling a stolen motorcycle in Taguig City — to the bike’s original owner, no less.

Motorcycle owner Mark Monton said his bike was parked in front of his house in Rodriguez, Rizal when it was stolen on May 4, ABS-CBN News reported.

On Saturday, he saw a photo of his stolen motorcycle on a Facebook page where it was being sold at PHP38,000 (US$721.33), Radyo Inquirer reported.

Monton contacted the suspects and said he would buy the motorcycle at a meetup point in Taguig City on the same day, a plan he told cops about. He came with authorities when he met up with the suspects, leading to the arrest of two unidentified men aged 23 and 24.

They will both face charges for violation of the anti-carnapping law and anti-fencing law.
