It started with one stole bike
THE WE ALWAYS CATCH OUR
Two weeks ago, Cookie's grandmother brought
her a new shining bike
For her birthday.
A week later it was stolen from her front lawn
Now Cookie and her friends are on
the case to find out who stole
So just sit back and enjoy their story:
"I can't believe that it has been a whole week.
And the cops still haven't found your
bike Cookie," Tommy Cub sighed
"Yah." I guess
they don't know what a big bummer it's for
a kid to lose their bikes.”
Sammy Turtle told her
"Have the cops told your mom anything new or
Any idea on when you might get it back?"
Daisy Penguin added
"They said that I would probably never get it back.
There's a gang of bike thieves roaming around
"Mines was the sixth bike that was reported
Stolen in a week,"
Cookie started to explain
"Oh wow!" That's scary," Daisy sadly told her
"But I was thinking that if the cops can't
find my bike, then we’ll!” Cookie giggled
"Cookie, did you hit your head or something?"
"What makes you think that we can find
When the cops can't even find it?"
"That's my point exactly!"
They don't have the time to look for it.
I don't think any kid's bike is safe unless we do
Something about it."
Cookie answered him
"Do something like?" Daisy asked her
"Like start a private detective club or
something like that.
And offer our services to kids in our
Neighborhood who the police are to
Busy to help
"I even picked out a name for it.
The We Always Catch Our Crooks Club
what do you guys think?" Cookie explained.
And after thinking it over for a couple
The rest of the gang decided that it was
a great idea
The next day right after breakfast
they started working on their first case
Solving the mystery of who stole
we'll take one side of the neighborhood
and you guys, search the other side.”
“We’ll meet back here around lunchtime
To compare notes. And remember
to keep your eyes open.” She added
A couple hours later they were all back at Cookie's
"So, how did you guys make out?"
Did you find out anything?"
Cookie asked the guys
the only interesting thing that happened was
Got kicked in the head.
When he tried to break up a fight between his
Little brother and his friend,"
"That wasn't funny dude!" Tommy growled
"What were they fighting about?"
Vicky asked trying hard not to laugh
"I don't know.
Those two are always fighting with each other"
"But I warn them that if they did it again
that I'd kick both their butts.”
Tommy answered her
Daisy just rolled her eyes at him
"What?" He shrugged.
A knock interrupted her answer
"I just saw them!"
Daisy's little sister Tracy cried out
As she rushed inside of Cookie's house
"You just saw who?" Daisy asked
"The guys, who robbed Cookie's bike!"
calm down and tell us what you saw,"
"I was walking to the candying store
When I noticed some weird looking foxes,
Writing down the address of a house.
That had a bunch of kid's bikes in the front yard"
"Then afterward, they got back in their van
It only drove half a block and did the same
thing over again.
So, they have to be the ones who stole
Cookie's bike!" Right?”
Tracy cried out
did you take down their license number?"
Tommy asked her
"The what?" Tracy frowned
"Never mind, come on quick
let's go and see if they're still around
You girls, go check out the right side of the block
and we'll go left."
A few minutes later they spotted the van that
Halfway down the block
"Okay, Sammy, let’s see if we
we can get a closer look and figure out
what they're up to,"
Tommy told him.
They crept along some parked cars until
they almost reached the van.
But it took off they tried to run after it
They're getting away," Sammy panted
"It's okay, I got the license plate number.
We'll just give it to the police and let them
deal with it,"
"Yah, but what if the van is stolen then what?"
Sammy told him
"You got a point.
I guess we'll just have to find a way to keep
Until we can find out where they hid all
the stolen bikes,"
They jumped inside the back of a cab that
was two cars behind the van
Waiting for the light to change
"Quick!" Follow that van!"
The one that's waiting for the light
to change." Tommy cried out
The cabbie turned around and just gave them
a confused stare
"You kids, are kidding me, right?" He asked
we got money if that's what you're worried
about," Sammy answered him
Then took out a big wad of bills out from
it's your money but never in my ten years of
driving this cab.
I never heard anyone asks me to follow
another car before,"
The cabbie shrugged
"Umm, can you please drive a little
faster this is important police business?”
Tommy asked as they drove off
“Sure kid.” The cabbie laughed
the foxes in that van are a bunch of
And we're following them in hopes that
they'll lead us to
where they're hiding all the stolen bikes,"
A few minutes later the cab followed the
van until it parked behind
An abounded warehouse
give him the money," Tommy told him
"Is this enough to have you wait
We'll only be gone for a few minutes
hopefully," Sammy asked
but I don't feel very comfortable having
you playing cops with some real robbers.
Why don't I just drive you kids to the
The cabbie answered
"Oh, don't worry about us, mister,
We can take care of ourselves"
Tommy proudly smiled.
"We're just going to take a quick peek just to
be sure that we've
The right guys before we tell the police."
"Okay, but only a quick peek. And
if you're not back in less than ten minutes
I'm calling the cops,"
The cabbie answered.
Then after thanking the cabbie
They ran towards the warehouse
we should go back and have the cabbie
call the cops now,"
Sammy whispered over to Tommy.
After they peek through the window and saw
that the two foxes
Looking over pictures of front lawns with
bikes in them
we need more proof we've to find the
Tommy whispered back.
He looked around and saw some stairs
that looked like they lead to a basement
I'm going down there, yell if you see them
coming out," He told Sammy
“Tommy, I don’t think that’s such a great idea.”
But it was too late
Tommy had already sneaked away
and ran towards the stairs
And after what seemed like hours
Sammy couldn't take
it anymore and went to look
What's taking you so long?"
A loud crashing noise interrupted
Tommy's responds as the
basement lights suddenly came on.
When he accidentally tripped over a
row of bikes.
Sammy quickly hurried over to him and was
about to ask him if he was okay
When a voice yelled out
"What are you kids doing down here?"
One of the foxes demanded
"Leaving," Sammy began
"Not so fast-"
"What my friend is trying to say is that
we owe you, kids
an apology we didn't mean to scare you.
Please you're free to go,"
The other fox interrupted
"We're not leaving without our friend's bike!"
Tommy cried out
"Huh?" Your friend's bike?"
One of the foxes asked with a
trying to look confuse tone of voice
it's right over there by the window,"
"Oh, I see you
think that just because it's over there
that we stole your friend's bike?"
The fox smirked
Why else would her bike be there?"
"Oh. Hey!" You kids have it all
wrong this isn't even our place it belongs
to a friend of ours.
We had no idea that these bikes
were down here"
"Please take it with you, and don’t worry
we'll be sure to call the cops as soon
as you leave.
And tell them all about what you found,"
The fox smiled.
They both knew that the fox was lying
but they decided to play along
"Yah, okay sounds fair enough to us,"
Tommy smiled back
help these kids take the bike upstairs
while I make that call," The fox told him
And as Tony slowly started to walk over
Tommy looked over at Sammy and winked
But Sammy didn't notice he was slowly
inching his way towards the stairs
“No. Sammy, wait!” He cried out
But it was too late
Sammy was already halfway up
"Hey!" Stop that kid!" The fox yelled.
Tony was about to chase him when a
loud voice yelled out
from the top of the stairs
"Hold it right there!" Nobody move!"
They all turned around and saw a cop
that stood halfway down
the stairs along with the cabbie
"You kids, okay?"
I got worried when you didn't return,
so, I placed a call to the police over
my cab radio"
there was a patrol car just a few
blocks from here.
And we got here
before these creeps could hurt you,"
The cabbie explained
"Thanks," Tommy answered him.
He then turned to the cop and
added pointing over to where
Cookie's bike was
"They stole my friend's bike.
It's right over there,"
Later that day they repeated their story
to a bunch of news reporters.
And had their pictures taken with the cabbie
But what they were most proud of wasn't
what was written about them in the paper
Was the smile on Cookie’s face
When she got her bike back
And what was written in the headlines
Attention all you want to be crooks!
There's a new sheriff in town and
they'll always catch their crooks!!
