An area conservation officer reports that while checking anglers in Thief River Falls he noted two juvenile females joy riding on a department store-type electric scooter.
According to the report, conservation officer Jeremy Woinarowicz says when they saw him, they jumped from the machine and started to walk away. Woinarowicz pretended to leave the area and returned a short time later to find them back on the machine. This time, they jumped from the scooter and hid in some trees. Woinarowicz contacted the hiding juveniles and learned they had stolen the scooter from a local grocery store.
Local authorities were contacted and loss-prevention personnel arrived to retrieve the stolen scooter.
