Another press release from Jo Hunt at West Midlands Police. Whilst the mobility scooter thieves who struck in Brownhills last week have yet to have their collars felt, it’s nice to note that there are some remarkably kind and generous folks still about. This is a true act of genuine human felicity, and I’d like to salute the donor for their considerate act.
Best wishes to all concerned, and I hope these thieving scum get their comeuppance soon.

MOBILITY SCOOTER DONATED TO VICTIM FOLLOWING THEFT FROM BROWNHILLS
The person, who wishes to remain anonymous, donated the scooter following a police appeal for information after callous thieves stole a mobility scooter from the front garden of a house in Fourth Avenue, Brownhills on Saturday 30 April..
Officers are still investigating the theft, it is believed that two men entered the front garden and loaded the scooter into a white van before driving off.
The first man is described as white, aged approximately 40 years, large build about 5ft 10ins tall with black hair beard and moustache. He is thought to have been wearing a blue and green striped woolly hat and dark green t-shirt.
The second male was also white and approximately 15 years. He was of a large build around 5ft 2ins tall with short dark hair with a blonde highlighted fringe. He was wearing a dark, patterned t-shirt.
PC Julie Armstrong, from Brownhills neighbourhood policing team, said: “We would like to thank the person who donated the scooter-the victim was overwhelmed with the gesture and arrangement s will be made to collect it soon.
This was a despicable crime targeting a vulnerable member of the community, whose access to mobility was diminished. We are still appealing for anyone who may have seen these men to contact us.”
