Stolen off our porch

Can't believe someone cut the chain of our kids motorized mini-cooper right from our porch. We are glad they left the kids bike, the cooper was slow and damaged. Good luck to whoever stole it, it takes a special charger and is low on battery. We had someone shoot a window with a bb gun last weekend too, not sure what is happening to this neighborhood.

    well, I have to tell you I am surprised they did not just take the rims and tires and left it on a couple of bricks.
    I think they probably seen that since it is good enough to lock up, it would be bad to lose and anything bad to lose is good to steal. the good news it is was damaged anyway and did not seem like a huge loss due to the unsatisfactory speed, but still the principal of the matter it still sucks, to steal a kids toy from your property. I would use this as an opportunity to go door to door and across the street and introduce yourself to any neighbors you don't already know while using the premise if they seen anything. the more people you know on your block the better.

    Thanks Robin and maybe we can use your business for other work so great to know. But we need a licensed electrician for this job I think unless your license covers this type of work?
