So on Monday night me and a friend where outside a bar in the area where my wheel got stolen, and we see a guy in the distance trying to ride an euc. I recognise the rear lights of the V5 and realise it was my euc! I tell my friend to go towards him to try and stop him to 'ask him a few questions', (I couldn't run as I'm recovering from a broken femur, non euc related). As soon as my friend gets to him the guy tries to brush him off, he picks up the wheel and starts to walk away. In the meantime I call the police to come to me as quickly as they can. The guy with my wheel gets on his phone and calls his friends to come and assist him, and he runs into a council estate. We decide not to follow him further as it's not worth risking to get stabbed over it.
The police show up after 20 minutes, take a statement, and email me today telling me they will not be looking into this issue any further as there is nothing they can do.
Doubt I'll be seeing him on it again as he's probably drained the battery on it already, so think it's time to get a new one, and this time I'll make sure to never leave it in my car again!
The police said there are kids that hang around in the area with key signal jammers, and try to steal what they can from cars. Seems like they got lucky this time!
