Chippenham boy heartbroken at theft of scooter
Eight-year-old Lenny Goodwin was left in tears after a thief stole his scooter for a second time.
Lenny, of Manor Road, Chippenham, was just getting to grips with his favourite toy after a shaky start with the Christmas present.
He was looking forward to playing after his first day back at school yesterday, but when he went to get it from his aunt’s garden, it was gone.
Six years ago, when he lived in Calne, his Lazy Town scooter was also swiped from the garden.
Mum Michelle Bishop, 27, said: “He’s really upset. He’s not very confident but he’s just got to the point where he was starting to get the hang of it and was ready to go out and about.
“I can’t just replace it, it cost £130.”
The Zinc Stunt scooter, which has a white frame and black handle bars with a stunt ball in the middle, was taken from Ashe Crescent, off Oaklands, between 6pm on Monday and 9.30am yesterday.
“It’s very rare, I haven’t seen another one like that,” said Miss Bishop. “When he first got it he didn’t like it because it wasn’t like all the other kids had.”
Anyone with information should call police on 101.
