LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Lafayette police said if you drive a moped, you may want to start locking it up.
This comes after several mopeds were found dumped behind a business complex on South 9th Street.
Police said they were taken apart and the vin numbers were removed.
They were able to recover some vin numbers on what was left of other parts of the mopeds, that's how they discovered one was reported stolen.
Lieutenant Scott Galloway said just like car parts, mopeds are valuable and they are easier to steal.
"Defintiely put some sort of locking mechanism or make sure your moped is safe and secure somehow because it is very easy to move those or pick them up and put them in trucks so do something to make sure you secure it," said Galloway.
