Here is the additional ending bit for this story . . .
The two boys took off running back across the street towards the park.
Uncle Jim put his hand on his shoulder. “What’s going on here, Elwood?”
Elwood then explained the whole story and showed him the pictures from his phone. Uncle Jim took him inside the station, sat him down in the waiting area, talked to the sergeant and showed him the pictures on Elwood’s phone. The sergeant nodded, picked up the phone and spoke briefly. Then two officers walked in, talked to the Uncle Jim for a minute and then headed back down a long hallway.
Uncle Jim sat next to him, “We have been trying to catch this ring of bike thieves for over a month. You’ve given us just the break we needed. Show me where this tree is.”
They stood up and started to walk toward the door but, Elwood tripped on his shoelace again.
“Can I please tie my shoelace first?”
Uncle Jim chuckled, “You bet!”
“Oh, and one more thing,” Elwood reached into his backpack and pulled out a book. “Can we stop by the library? My mom will kill me if I don’t get this book returned today.”
