ROCK HILL — Four mo-peds that belonged to customers and were stored in the back of an unlocked pickup truck at Five Star Customs in Rock Hill were stolen sometime this weekend, police say.
On Monday, police spoke with an employee at the Cherry Road detail shop after she realized that four mo-peds were missing from the back of a black 2000 Chevrolet parked behind the business, according to a Rock Hill police report. She told police she last noticed the mo-peds inside the truck this past Saturday.
The business owner said the mo-peds were placed in the truck three weeks ago, but the truck was left unlocked, the report states. The mo-peds, he told police, belonged to customers who dropped them off to be worked on.
He told authorities he did not know the mo-ped’s VIN numbers or the names of the customers, but he reported that the motor bikes cost about $1,000 each. Police were unable to process the truck for fingerprints because Five Star employees touched and moved the truck when they discovered the mo-peds missing.
