Scooter missing? Henderson Police say they might have it |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
With rising fuel prices, many people have turned to scooters as an alternative form of transportation.
They are relatively inexpensive and use minimal amounts of fuel.
Henderson Police say during the past few months, there has been a rise in the number of scooter thefts and they are asking for help from scooter owners.
Police are asking scooter owners to write down the make, model and serial number of your scooter and take a photograph of it. HPD says this will help them out tremendously if your scooter is stolen.
Authorities say scooters are not being secured, with a chain, when not in use. Police said they are also finding that they are being hot-wired and/or the keys are being left in the ignition.
Henderson Police say they have recovered several scooters recently, but have only been able to identify the owner of one in recent weeks.
Police say if your scooter is missing they might just have it and may release it back to you if you can identify the scooter (make, model, identifying characteristics) and provide proof of ownership.
They say if you have had a scooter stolen and not reported it to police, to call the Henderson Police Department.
