A WOMAN has been left angry after thieves stole a moped given to her as a Christmas present and then she saw it being driven outside her house.
Julie Gregson, of Caia Park, received a new moped for Christmas to help her get to and from work.
But the two-wheeler was stolen from the garden of her home on Coed Aben.
The persistent thieves stole the scooter despite it having handle bar locks on, a chain on the back tyre and being kept in the garden which had a locked metal gate.
Mrs Gregson, 43, said: “They stole the bike in the evening and they never made a noise. When I noticed it was gone I called the police.
“The officer was here and then we saw it driving up and down right in front of the house.
“The policeman gave chase but because he was on foot he couldn’t catch them.
“I have seen the bike drive up and down again.
“It’s horrible and I’m quite angry because I only just got the bike, which was worth about £650, and have only ridden it twice, once for the CBT training and again to get to work.
“But I had planned on using it a lot more to get tow work at the Deva House Day Centre.
“The bike was beautiful as well.”
The moped is a blue and black Lexmoto 125cc Gladiator and was taken on Tuesday, January 5, shortly before 6pm
Anyone who has any information or knows anything about the theft is asked to call North Wales Police on 101, using the crime reference number R006562.
