A woman called police Saturday afternoon to report her son’s scooter was stolen overnight, in addition to a bike’s handlebar lock being partially broken, according to a police report.
The woman spoke to police at about 12:32 p.m. to report the theft, which occurred overnight at her apartment complex in the 2400 block of East McKinney Street. She said her son left his blue scooter outside the night prior and it was missing by the morning. She added a bicycle was damaged when someone tried to take it but couldn’t undo the handle lock, leading them to undo the hardware connecting it to the handlebars and take that as well.
The report doesn’t mention any possible security footage of the incident, which police reported as theft under $100 and criminal mischief, loss less than $100.
