Not the Best Escape Vehicle
According to a Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office press release, several calls came in the middle of the night about a series burglar attempts in the small community of Samoa, California. The description of each "the suspect" was the same__ a young man wearing a sweatshirt and shorts and thought to be still in the area.
Sheriff deputies were dispatched and a suspect matching the description of the thief was spotted riding away from yet another house on a Razor Scooter. A Deputy attempted to stop and question the suspect who tried to sped off on the scooter. The deputy pursued on foot. The suspect dropped the scooter, (assuming due a lack of speed) and began running, but was soon caught and identified. The scooter had been stolen.
The suspect was booked into jail for possession of stolen property, resisting or delaying an officer, and violating the terms of his probation.
