VERO BEACH, Florida – A Vero Beach man contacted police about a theft at his apartment complex.

The victim, identified as Steve Nichols, told officers that a man in his 20’s took his black and blue scooter without permission.

Nichols said the suspect’s name is “Tony” and that he was supposed to find him a girlfriend, or “find a girl for him to have as his girlfriend,” according to the report.

The victim said the two men were drinking beer together, but Nichols fell asleep. When he woke up, the scooter was missing along with his wallet and debit cards.

Nichols was unable to provide police with any distinguishing marks or other information on the scooter. But he said the item is valued at $2,000.00.

Police advised Nichols to call law enforcement if he obtained any more information on the scooter. He was also advised to keep a watch for fraudulent charges on his credit cards.
