Between Monday evening and now (Wednesday afternoon), there have been at least 3 scooters stolen from our neighborhood. Two of the 3 thefts have definitely occurred during the day, with the time of the 3rd theft being unknown. Two of these thefts have occurred since the owners left for work this morning. These vehicles may still be in the neighborhood, stuffed in an alley, hidden in brush, or something similar.
We’ve got some fairly professional thieves doing this, as they’ve been breaking locks that were previously thought to be impervious, they are kicking down fences, they are carrying scooters down stairs, they are really going crazy with it right now.
If I may ask you all for some favors, here they are: PLEASE lock your scooters up! Get insurance if you don’t have it! Use
more locks! Put them in your shed! Put them in your kitchen for crying out loud! PLEASE keep an eye out for any pickup trucks with scooters in them, and let me know if you happen to get any make/model/license plates. Anything helps.
Thank you so much for reading, and please call the police or call me
