Edinburgh police launch search after 150 e-scooters worth £100k stolen

Police Scotland is investigating the high-value theft of e-scooters from a business premises in Loanhead.

Between 7.15pm on Thursday, 10 June, 2021 and 6am on Friday, 11 June 2021, the building on Dryden Road[1] was broken into and between 100-150 boxed e-scooters[2] stolen.

It is believed the theft specifically happened between midnight and around 2am.

The approximate value of the stolen goods[3] is £100,000. At least three different models were stolen, they are:

• Xiaomi pro 2, which are mainly black in colour with a red rim around the front wheel

• SAB tech 9 pro, which are black in colour

• MS65 replicas, some of which are black and some white in colour.

Due to the volume of stolen items detectives believe those involved in the theft arrived in a vehicle and most likely were using a van or lorry to carry out the theft.

Detective Constable John Lumsden from Dalkeith Police Station[4], said: “Initial enquiries have been carried out into this theft and we continue to review CCTV from the premises and those nearby. I’d ask anyone with private or business CCTV covering the area to check their footage and provide any to us as soon as possible.

“Despite this happening overnight, I’d ask anyone who may have seen any suspicious vehicles in our around the premises in the early hours of Friday morning to report any sightings to officers. Due to the number of stolen goods it is likely that the suspects had to load these into a van or lorry over a period of time.

“I’d ask anyone who has recently been offered an e-scooter, or seen new advertisements online for selling sites matching the above description, to report this to officers so that we can investigate.”

Those with information should report this to Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 0616 of 11 June. An anonymous report can be given to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The crooks cut through the side of Scoot-A-Boot’s unit in the town near Edinburgh late last night, before making off with the adult scooters.

They managed to avoid the CCTV within the store, but staff are hoping footage from the street could help nail them.

Owner Rory Boyd said: “They’ve cut through the side of the unit.

“We’re tying to check CCTV. They’ve managed to avoid ours because the scooters were taken from another level.

“They were in storage up on the top level and they’ve managed to get up without actually setting foot on the ground floor of the store.

“So we’re trying to check the CCTV from out on the street.

“Someone came in between 6am and 7am this morning and thought there had just been an attempted break-in, but we later realised the scooters were gone.”

The raid was reported to cops yesterday morning after staff made the discovery, and officers have launched a probe

Detective Constable John Lumsden from Dalkeith Police Station, said: “Initial enquiries have been carried out into this theft and we continue to review CCTV from the premises and those nearby.

“I’d ask anyone with private or business CCTV covering the area to check their footage and provide any to us as soon as possible.
