That is what you need to do. Get the person to come out with the laptop, identify it, call police. You screwed up by stating it was "police business" already.
Oh an take pics. Cant have a thread here without pics.
That guy was able to prove it was his bike. OP can prove nothing. He may know beyond a shadow of a doubt the computer is his but that is worth nothing to the cops.
