Appeal after mobility scooters are damaged in Morecambe
Police have issued CCTV images of two youths they want to speak with after two mobility scooters were damaged in Morecambe in May.
The first offence took place between 6th and 7th of May on Station Road when a mobility scooter, which was parked inside a secure area of a housing block, had its ignition damaged.
The second offence took place on 6th May when the offenders gained access to a residential car park at the Queens Square flats on Station Road and stole a mobility scooter, causing damage to it before abandoning it on nearby street.
PC Iain Arnott from Morecambe Police said: “I would appeal to anybody that recognises the two males in the CCTV images to come forward.
“Officers have recovered the second mobility scooter back to Morecambe Police station for forensic examination. However, the scooter has a damaged steering column and wires exposed so will need to be repaired before it can be used again by its rightful owner.
“Criminal damage is not acceptable and I would ask anyone with any information to call Lancashire Police on 101.”
