Scooter thieves among us!

Posted on Wed, Oct 9, 2013 at 11:41 PM

Police have issued a warning to operators of a growing number of motor scooters to lock them when not in use.

Thirty-six of the two-wheelers have been reported stolen in the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department jurisdiction, 30 of them since June 1. Only seven had been secured with a locking device.

“These scooters are growing in popularity, but they are relatively easy for thieves to pick up and steal,” said Acting Chief Julie Tolbert. “Many of the victims of these thefts are those who can least afford to lose them.”

Police suggest using a chain or cable to secure the scooters to a fixed object, a la bicycles.
