** TACKLING SCOOTER CRIME IN SOUTH LEEDS **
On Saturday 24th of September, PCSO Lythe was on high visibility patrol within the #Holbeck area of #Leeds. At this time, the pictured scooter was sighted to enter Balm Place. The rider pulled up and entered a nearby property. Police were aware of the scooter already, having been ridden in an anti-social manner previously and without the necessary paperwork due to previous intelligence and stop checks. Enquiries were carried out and it became apparent that the vehicle had no tax, no MOT and no insurance.
A Police Officer attended the location and submitted the required paperwork for recovery of the vehicle. The vehicle was seized.
This incident shows Police Community Support Officers out within the communities at the right time, researching intelligence and taking the correct action.
