AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - A pair of Dutch burglars' bad luck shifted into high gear when they were caught fleeing the scene of an attempted break-in on bicycles belonging to the very policeman who arrested them.
Police in a suburb of the eastern Dutch city of Nijmegen said the hapless burglars were trying to break into a house Sunday when neighbors alerted the police. When policemen arrived at the scene a witness pointed them in the direction in which the pair rode away on bicycles.

The suspects were soon chased down and arrested separately. One arresting officer was surprised to recognize his own bicycle. The other thief was found with the other bike.

"Apparently they happened to steal these bicycles from the officer's back garden during their flight," police said in a statement.

The men, aged 26 and 32, were taken into custody and charged with bike theft.

"We're investigating whether it's possible they have committed other burglaries," police said
