Scooter thief who jumped on trampoline bounces into arms of police
TO Geraldton, Western Australia, where police have captured a 17-year-old scooter thief.
The thief was being chased. He hit a kerb. He ran off, jumping a fence. On the other side was a trampoline. The thief landed on it and bounced back into the arms to the police.
Says Sergeant Grant Rosman:
“I think it was one of those situations where you probably couldn’t repeat if you tried to. It was just fortunate for the police – but not for him. Everyone was positioned correctly there and he bounced straight back into their arms.”
As ever, it’s worth looking at the list of offences the miscreant has been charged with:
The 17-year-old has been charged with seven offences, including drink driving and not wearing a helmet.
Trampolining scooter thieves must wear a helmet. You’ve been warned…
