Thief makes off with library books

SCARNESS resident Victoria Marshall cut a distraught figure yesterday.

She was still struggling to come to terms with the theft of the deep bag attached to the back of her mobility scooter.

“It’s a bit of a shock,” she said of the theft on Monday morning.

“I didn’t sleep last night. I can’t believe it. How could this happen to an invalid or an 83-year-old?

“We’re all on our own when we go out on these things. We don’t have anyone to help.”

In this case the thief can look forward to some heavy reading after snatching a bagful of hardback library books.

“It must have been very heavy.

“Please take the books back to the library and the bag back to the surgery,” Ms Marshall urged the culprit.

Ms Marshall had lived without incident on the Fraser Coast for 30 years until she left her scooter outside a Pialba doctor’s surgery between 10am and 11am on Monday.

“I’d like to warn other scooter users. Don’t leave anything in the bag.”
