Scooter Theft

On 8/18/10, OFC Lapp of the Frederick Police Department’s Directed Patrol Unit, was patrolling in the area of W12th and Neidig Ave. At approximately that time he observed a motor scooter, being operated by Timothy S. FROCK, fail to stop for a stop sign. At that time the scooter was also occupied by another male juvenile passenger. OFC Lapp initiated a traffic stop and observed the driver fail to stop for another stop sign in the area of Invader Alley and Kossman Alley. Moments later the scooter came to a stop and both occupants attempted to distance themselves from the scooter. After establishing identities, MVA checks revealed that FROCK was unlicensed and did not possess a moped permit. FROCK was arrested. A follow-up investigation revealed that the scooter was also stolen but not reported as the owner had not been aware that the scooter had been stolen.
