Stolen motor scooters recovered

Three Yamaha motor scooters that were stolen last week were recovered nearby, stashed in some bushes.

Saanich police Sgt. Steve Eassie said a passerby found the bikes Wednesday (May 15) within two blocks of where they were stolen.

“It looked like somebody stashed them and was looking to come back, but were unable to,” he said.

Two scooters parked in the 500-block of Crossandra Cres. and one parked in the 3900-block of Raymond St. all disappeared overnight on May 13.

Police recommend scooter owners invest in theft prevention devices like locks and chains to minimize their risk of being targeted.
