Stolen moped returned to rightful owner thanks to Swale PCSOs
Main article content
A routine patrol by two of our PCSOs has led to a stolen moped being returned to its rightful owner.
Swale Police Community Support Officers Jake Marsh and Lee Fennell were on patrol in Sittingbourne on Wednesday 10 November 2021 when they came across a moped that looked abandoned in Sandford Road.
After making several checks, including checking the registration details they found the owner had reported it stolen two weeks previously from Pembury Street.
PCSO Jake Marsh said: ‘We know that burglary can have devastating consequences for victims and although we are doing all we can to reduce these offences and arrest those responsible, it is equally important we try and give people a happy ending by reuniting them with their belongings.
`I’m delighted we have been able to help the victim in this respect.’
Owners also stand a far greater chance of having stolen belongings returned, by security marking items such as bikes and power tools and making sure electronic devices, including phones and tablets are logged on the property marking database www.immobilise.com.
