Elderly woman's mobility scooter stolen from outside bookmakers

Thieves stole a 72-year-old woman's mobility scooter from outside a bookmakers in Essex and tried to sell it.

The scooter was stolen from Broadway in Pitsea on May 18.

Later that day it was taken to Lifestyle and Mobility shop in Basildon where attempts were made to sell it.

When staff refused to buy the scooter, suspects became verbally abusive and caused damage to the store on their way out.

Investigating officer Pc Zhak Burrows said: "The elderly victim relies on the mobility scooter to get around and this theft caused him distress as well as had a big impact on his lifestyle.”

Police have released CCTV of two women they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

Anyone who recognises the women is asked to call Pc Burrows on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
