ST. LOUIS (KMOX) -  A local man took to the Internet and became his own detective after his home was robbed.

The man came home Monday to find his garage door open and his bicycle and lawnmower missing.

He went on Craigslist and discovered a bike and a mower for sale with descriptions that were suspiciously familiar.

He called the seller to express interest in buying the items and was rewarded with the man’s phone number and home address.

The theft victim turned that info over to police and 21-year-old Gary Heggins of St. Louis now faces felony burglary charges.
