Stolen moped found and returned

Posted by Iva Radman – email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Our report on moped thefts in Richmond's Museum District, helped lead to a break in at least one of the cases.

You might remember Ryan Cowan. His bike was stolen after he left it parked without a lock in front of his home.

Friday morning, the day after our report aired, he got a call saying his bike had been found and he couldn't have been happier.

He believes our Neighborhood Crime Watch helped police track it down. The bike was damaged and is at the repair shop.

Cowan isn't not exactly sure how police were able to find it, but is glad they did.
