During the early hours of Bank Holiday Monday, Cornwall Scooter Centre was broken into and robbed. Six classic scooters (belonging to customers) were taken in the robbery, the shop safe was also broken into.
The robbery appears to be a targeted professional job and the thieves had obviously been into the shop before, they knew exactly how to break the lock and what they were looking for once inside. Shop owner, Graeme Lake told us “We are waiting on the police checking the other businesses CCTV along the road, ours didn’t pick much up. It looks like a professional job and by someone who had been in the shop before, like every scooter shop, every Tom, Dick and Harry comes in!”
THE STOLEN SCOOTERS
- Lambretta SX150 white with a newly built RT195 & BGM Clubman
- Vespa T5 millennium #41 in pearl white
- Vespa Sprint, white with a Malossi 225 built on Pinasco cases
- Lambretta Spanish Li, white/purple modified to take GP panelwork
- Vespa P125X blue with new Polini 177 and black crash bars and several mirrors
- Vespa 150 Super, white with dodgy floor and stand
We personally know two of the six owners, Jacqui Harrison owns the limited edition pearl white Millenium T5 (above) and was so upset when she received a phone call from the shop that she was unable to speak and had to pass the phone over to boyfriend Mark.
Vespa 150 Super – KMR 71F
Tracie Shippey owns the 150 Super (pictured above) and was equally as upset, the scooter was a 10th wedding anniversary gift from husband Mark, she’d not even ridden it but was due to pick it up from the shop next week.
