Scooter stolen at Coquitlam bus loop
A thief stole a mobility scooter at the Coquitlam bus exchange on Lougheed Highway Wednesday, Sept. 7, leaving Sherri Broadfoot without wheels.
Broadfoot, who is on a disability pension and suffers from various ailments that affect her mobility, was standing up to talk with a cab driver at about 10 a.m. and when she turned around to get her scooter, it was gone.
"I can't walk without it," said Broadfoot, who was on her way to an outing at Buntzen Lake with Port Coquitlam-based New View Society when scooter was stolen.
In the meantime, she has paid $260 out of her disability pension to rent another scooter, but it's costly and doesn't go as fast.
The original scooter is blue and with a black seat and a black wire basket. At the time of the theft, the basket held a bag containing homemade jewelry.
Broadfoot has reported the theft to Coquitlam RCMP and anyone with information about the scooter is asked to call, 604-945-1550.
