Hey all, P.E.A.C.E. Scooter was stolen last night between 230am and 10am. If you can help spread the word in any way, to get more eyeballs out there, I most appreciate it. I am beside myself with grief right now. Very pissed that I didn't have my lock on it--I am house-sitting and forgot to bring the lock over here, thought it would be fine--because let's face it--my scooter is beat up and pretty identifiable. Again appreciate help spreading the word and i just want it back no questions asked. I have called it in to the police.

OMG no!!! Not the Peace Scooter! Alix I am so sorry to hear this. I can't imagine how you must be feeling. Any other scoter can be replaced. But the Peace Scoter... OMG. I can't imagine. I will be hoping for the best possible outcome. My heart goes out to you.

Thank you for the sentiment. If the scooter just wound up where it was last night when I went to sleep, I would be okay with it--no questions asked. Not ready to part with that thing yet. I have faith this will work out. Thanks again.

That sucks. Did you post it to scoot.net, and CL, and the local dealer too?

No good! Why would anyone steal a PEACE scooter? At least it's well marked and stands out. Hopefully something turns up in a few days. I'll check craigslist up this way, see if anything comes up.

Alix, if you will PM the police report number and the VIN to me, I'll go look where I found the stolen scoot last time, but (based on my experience from last time) I want to have the info for the police before I go. I can print the photo of your scoot and write the info on it. That should do it.

That sucks Alix - we'll keep an eye out for it in Detroit.

Have you hit the local area to do a little checking? Can you organize a grid for Richmond peeps to fan out and eyeball back roads, etc.?

I hope that it's back soon, undamaged.

that totally sucks Evil or Very Mad Hope you get your ride back. I can't believe anyones dumb enough to steal a scooter that stands out so much. Hopefully they'll bring it back but if they don't I hope they are dumb enough to try to sell it to a MB member.

Very sorry for you, that scooter obviously had allot of your emotional time invested. A thief is a thief and a sickness. I hate to say that I have come across some of the most regular acting people that cant help covet their neighbors property. Its likely that whoever took it lives nearby and passes that home regularly. I would post photo fliers near by that home and at the high school with the heading LOST PET $100 REWARD! Just to get peoples attention.

Hey, the scooter was recovered. An anonymous call was made after the caller heard a rustling in the alleyway. They went down to check, saw the scooter, and called the police--allegedly.

The scooter was wedged back in a tiny, dark spot. Most likely they were going to come back to get it.

The carb is flooded and the windscreen is cracked, but otherwise looks okay. I will get it checked out.

I am very appreciative for the response spreading the word around my city. All in all it has been just 12 hours.

I literally felt as though a part of me was gone!

Still beyond belief that anyone would take that scooter.

That's awesome that you got it back! I don't think I've ever heard of a faster recovery, or less damage. I didn't even get a chance to hear that it was stolen before it was recovered. Very good indeed!

Alix, so good to hear you got your scoot back! This scoot is an important part of Buddy history.

It's not even a joke. Richmond, DC and Boston are the scooter theft capitols of the US!

Everyone should read Chelsea's (from Scoot Richmond) excellent thread on theft and prevention:

Congrats Alix!

Hopefully CitizenX will be as lucky. Not sure how the heck they would go about hiding it anyhow, as it is so unique looking...hopefully that will work in your favor.

sorry to see such a good looking ruckus violated. would be nice to see RPD set up a bait program. rig a few nice looking scooters with the GPS tracker that Ed signed up for, leave them in hot spot areas, then wait a few hours.
