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.

β€œIt 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.
