Rainham boys reunited with their stolen scooters after Medway Messenger appeal
Sadness turned to joy for young
brothers Nathan and Daniel Laraman who have their stolen scooters
The boys were devastated when the
new scooters were taken from the garage of their home in Wheatcroft
Grove, Rainham, before they even had a chance to ride them.
Mum Helen Tamsett appealed in the
Medway Messenger for the return of the scooters, which were bought
as surprise presents.
Days after the story appeared,
Helen got a call to say they had been handed in at Medway police
Police would only say they had been
found by someone in Edwin Road, Rainham.
Helen, 26, said: “It seemed a bit
of a coincidence that we got the call just after it went in your
"Perhaps it may have pricked
somebody’s conscience and seeing the picture of the boys looking
glum may have pulled a few heartstrings.
Since then Nathan, seven, and
Daniel, six, have been out on the scooters all the time. Helen
said: “We thought there was no chance of seeing the scooters
"The boys are absolutely delighted.
Thank you Medway Messenger.”
