Four reader reports tonight:
RECOGNIZE THIS SCOOTER? Abandoned vehicles of all types usually turn out to be stolen, so we’re featuring this here. From Charlie:
On Thursday evening, someone parked a silver Piaggio (Vespa-style) motorbike in the street out in front of our home near Morgan Junction. I have checked with neighbors and our Neighborhood Watch families to see if anyone living nearby belonged to the vehicle, to no avail. It seems to have been abandoned or ditched and I have filed an abandoned vehicle report with SPD. The tag [2A6034] expired in 2015. Maybe one of your readers will recognize this vintage ride!
LOCKER-ROOM THEFT: We’ve published reader reports before about car prowls in the LA Fitness parking garage. Now there’s word of an LA Fitness locker break-in – Susan told us via Twitter that it happened Monday morning; her purse, phone, and lock were stolen from the locker room and one of her credit cards was used at Target a half-hour later. She says the thief would have to be a member because of the gym policies.
DOOR KICKED: Richard on 26th SW in Westwood reported that someone tried to kick in his door while he was home this afternoon.
FURNITURE THEFT: From Cindy:
Bummer 3 stacking end tables were just taken from our side yard….. stolen!?!?
At 7:40 PM today 12/6/16 while moving stuff from my mothers home to our home (4601 SW Stevens), our son took three nesting walnut tables out of his car to the sidewalk’s edge/lawn on the 46th Ave SW side of our house. He brought in a box of books. Went back for the tables and they are GONE.
Attached picture from the internet is almost but not exact. Ours are walnut. Ebay value is about $600.
