WE ALWAYS CATCH

Summary

Who stole Cookie's new bike

Who stole

THE WE ALWAYS CATCH OUR CROOKS CLUB 

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 her bike. 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 bike,” Sammy Turtle told her
“Have the cops told your mom anything new or gave her 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 the neighborhood”
“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?” Sammy frowned. “What makes you think that we can find your bike? When the cops can’t even find it?”
“That’s my point exactly!” They don’t have the time to look for it. And I don’t think any kids 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 the neighborhood who the police are too busy to help”
“I even picked out a name for it. The We Always Catch Our Crooks Club, so what do you guys think?” Cookie explained. And after thinking it over for a couple of minutes. 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 Cookie’s bike 
“Okay, we’ll take one side of the neighborhood and you guys, search the other,” Cookie instructed. “Remember to keep your eyes open and we’ll meet back here around lunch time. To compare notes,” She added 

A couple hours later they were all back at Cookie’s house
“So how did you guys make out?” Did you find out anything?” Cookie asked the guys
“Nope, the only interesting thing that happened was that Tommy, got kicked in the head. When he tried to break up a fight between his little brother and his friend,” Sammy laughed
“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!” Tracy exclaimed
“Okay Tracy, calm down and tell us what you saw,” Vicky added
“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 after wards 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!” Tracy cried out

“Oh wow!” 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 here. You girls, go check out the right side of the block and we’ll go left,” Tommy instructed 

A few minutes later they spotted the van that Tracy described. Half way down the block
“Okay Sammy, let’s see if 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
“Oh no!” 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,” Tommy answered
“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 following them until we can find out where they hid all the stolen bikes,” Tommy shrugged. 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
“No, we got money if that’s what you’re worried about,” Sammy answered him. Then took out a big wad of bills out from his pocket
“Okay kid, it’s your money but never in my ten years of driving this cab. I never heard any one ask me to follow after 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
“No, seriously, the foxes in that van are a bunch of bike robbers!” And we’re following them in hopes that they’ll lead us to where they’re hiding all the stolen bikes,” Sammy added   

A few minutes later the cab followed the van until it parked in back of an abounded warehouse
“Okay Sammy, give him the money,” Tommy told him
“Is this enough to have you wait for us?” We’ll only be gone for a few minutes hopefully,” Sammy asked
“Sure kid, 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 police station?” 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 then ten minutes I’m calling the cops,” The cabbie answered. Then after thanking the cabbie they ran towards the warehouse

“I think 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 were looking over pictures of front lawns with bikes in them
“Not yet, we need more proof we’ve to find the bike first,” Tommy whispered back. He looked around and saw some stairs that looked like they lead to a basement
“Okay, 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
He went to look for Tommy 

“Hey Tommy!” What’s taking you so long?” 

A loud crushing noise interrupted Tommy’s responds as the basement lights suddenly came on. When he accidently 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 fox asked with a trying to look confuse tone of voice
“Yah, it’s right over there by the window,” Tommy frowned
“Oh, I see you think that just because it’s over there that we stole your friend’s bike?” The fox smirked
“Well duh!” Why else would her bike be there?” Sammy frowned
“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
“Great!” Tony, please help these kids take the bike upstairs while I make that call,” The fox told him. And as Tony slowly started to walk over towards them
Tommy looked over to 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 half way up the stairs
“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!” No body move!” 

They all turned around and saw a cop that stood half way down the stairs along with the cabbie
“You kids, okay? I got worried when you didn’t returned so I placed a call to the police over my cab radio”
“Thankfully, 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 the headlines read 

Which was: 

Attention all you want to be crooks!
There’re new sheriff in town and they’ll always catch their crooks!!!
