Police in Salisbury are appealing for help after an elderly couple’s mobility scooter was stolen.
The scooter was taken between the hours of 3pm and 5pm on the 8th June from a bus stop in Britford Lane. The owners had taken the scooter and parked it at the bus stop in order to catch the bus into Salisbury town centre. On their return the scooter was gone.
PC Fritz Macaulay, Harnham Community Beat manager said:
“We would like to hear from anyone who saw the scooter being taken from the bus stop in Britford Lane or if anyone has any information about this theft. The owners of this are an elderly couple in their 90’s who rely on the mobility scooter for their independence. They are very upset that the scooter was taken and cannot understand why anyone would want to do this.
It is a cruel crime to steal a mobility scooter from someone who is vulnerable and we would like to hear from anyone who can help us get this scooter back to its owners.”
The mobility scooter is described as a blue ‘Prestige model –Explorer 6’.
If you have any information please call 101 and ask for PC Macaulay, Harnham Beat Manager or if you wish to remain anonymous please call crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
