Scooter Crime

A couple years back there was a huge, huge rash of scooters being stolen. Criminals had gotten so brash as to attempt to scooter-jack people. I don't know if scooter crime disappeared for a short while, but the reports of a scooter getting stolen in southern part of the TC brought back memories.
On-line on the 5D listserv there was some good back and forth between the person reporting the stolen scooter and the police. Over on the discussion list TC residents are keeping an eye out for the scooter. In all this a stolen scooter was located but not the one stolen from Hanover St. NW.
So, be on the lookout for a blue/black Kymco scooter, license plate MT6797.

Between the theft of scooters, the security for the inaugeration, and weather, I'm almost happy to be in Chicago.

Except of course, here they pretty much skip all other crime and go straight to the standard "south side man shot" headlines.

Scooter theft. Hm.

Last I was in Chicago it seemed that you had more knifing victims and lotsa found dead bodies.

Thanks for the coverage! Scooter was stolen for the unit block of P. Parties of interest are from Hanover Street. I was pleased by the police response on the 5D listserv.
