Rehoboth Beach police are investigating the suspected theft of two motor scooters (mopeds) this past weekend. The first theft was actually reported this past Friday evening. A red 2009 ETon Beemer III with Delaware tag MP6591 was taken from the corner of 1st Street and Rehoboth Avenue in the scooter parking area around 7 p.m. This is an actual photo of the scooter.
The scooter has a unique decal of a pickle and some eyeballs, as shown below, from the cartoon Rick and Morty.
Lt. William Sullivan says the second motor scooter — a sage green Genuine “Buddy” moped — was reportedly removed from the scooter parking stall between O’bies by the Sea and the Boardwalk Plaza between 9:45 a.m. and 6 p.m. this past Saturday.
Back in May, Rehoboth Beach police investigated two other scooter thefts in front of Eden Restaurant and another attempted in front of Houston White Co. that same evening back on May 15. All scooters from those incidents were recovered on May 16, Lt. Sullivan noted, and suspects, a male juvenile and one adult male, were arrested for those cases.
