LMPD gives out limited number of free moped locks

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police are taking a proactive approach to combat moped and scooter thefts.

Officers were passing out a limited number of free moped and scooter locks Friday at LMPD's fourth division, located on S. 4th Street. LMPD says it bought 160 locks with money from Metro Council.

There has been a rise in thefts of scooters and mopeds. The locks will help keep them secure.

A testament to the problem: one man pleaded not guilty in court Friday morning, accused of driving a stolen moped. Police say they were only going to give 23-year-old Robert Gummer a warning for jumping the curb and not wearing proper eyewear, but officers say they quickly learned the $750 moped was stolen.

They charged Gummer with receiving stolen property.
