It doesn’t take long for thievery.
An Independence County resident found that out Tuesday. James Vangrow and friends were riding their mopeds and other vehicles in the Miller Creek area when his moped stopped working.
Vangrow said he pushed the moped down a trail so it couldn’t be seen from the road. He then went to a friend’s house to get a part to fix the moped. Upon his return, the moped was missing.
Vangrow told Independence County Deputy Adam McGilton he did see a vehicle parked near the old bridge, and gave a description to McGilton.
The moped is described as being a 50 cubic centimeter (cc) Dycon brand, blue in color, with black graphics on the side. McGilton said he entered the moped into the Arkansas Crime Information Center.
