Out-of-gas Razor Dune Buggy swiped
A dune buggy that ran out of gas while a Birmingham boy was riding it, and then was too heavy for the mother and son to push it home, was discovered stolen on Saturday, February 6, when they went back to retrieve it.
Birmingham police reported that a 38-year-old female resident contacted them to report the theft of her son's Razor Dune Buggy. She explained she had gone for her walk around 4 p.m. while her son rode his dune Buggy, and the dune buggy ran out of gas while they were out, and it was too heavy for them to push it back to their home. They left it against a tree between Lakeside Road and the sidewalk at Randall Court, walked home, and planned to wait for her husband to return home to retrieve the dune buggy.
She informed officers she then left to run errands, and when she returned around 5:20 p.m., the dune buggy was gone.
Police spoke to a witness who reported seeing a white male with a gray beard who drove by in a gray pickup truck, stop and load the dune buggy into his truck.
The Razor Dune Buggy is described as red and black, and in relatively new condition. It is valued at approximately $400.
Birmingham police said an investigation is ongoing.
