Re: Stolen Moped - Arlington, VA

sorry to hear about it simon, I really want to help, but im from NJ. I really hope it turns up and you catch the people who stole it, it seems as if they used a powertool to cut down the street-sign: so much trouble, for so little bike.

For the record, what is the reward you are planning to give?

Sorry to hear re this thieft. Let's hope that this dude that got your's ends up like the one in early June in Arlington County which I posted. He recieved a Darwin Award in the Moped Div. - - while participating in a "low speed chase" with the Police.

I live in Northern VA and will keep an eye out for this ped while commuting home thru Arl.Co and during my lunch hour in Crystal City.
