Creepy surveillance video of pudgy, shirtless scooter thief & friends

Atlanta's crime epidemic du jour? Scooter thievery.

Atlanta police are investigating five separate motor scooter thefts — all of them from residences — between July 18 and 23.

Here's surveillance video of a scooter being stolen from a home on Vaughn St. in southeast Atlanta by an overweight, shirtless guy and three accomplices ...

The other thefts — which may or may not be related — took place on Gilbert Street SE, E. Confederate Avenue, La France Street NE and Virginia Avenue NE.

And the thieves are getting bolder in their pursuit of fuel efficient motorized transportation. Last night at around 10 p.m., a group of five males between the ages of 17 and 21 forced a man off his scooter on Parkway Drive NE in Old Fourth Ward.

Oh, and if you recognized the guys from the video, contact Crime Stoppers 404-577-8477.
