NEW CASTLE — A South Side man is facing charges for allegedly stealing a boy’s bicycle, then reselling it.

New Castle police have charged Keith Andrew Marshall, 29, of 1113 Sciota St. in connection with the alleged theft, which was reported the afternoon of July 25.

According to police, a resident of the 400 block of Long Avenue reported someone had stolen her son’s yellow Magna 22-speed bicycle from their yard that morning.

She said before she had called 911, she noticed the bicycle for sale at a Long Avenue business. The owner showed her a receipt proving he had bought the bike for $20 from Marshall.

Police have charged Marshall with theft and receiving stolen property.

He was sent a summons to appear in for a preliminary hearing.
