MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Five mopeds and a motorcycle were reported stolen in Myrtle Beach over the weekend.

On Friday, June 27, a woman told police she chained her Tao Tao moped to a pole at 9:50 a.m. and at 4:15 p.m., it was gone.

The incident reported the moped was located near the comedy club at Broadway at the Beach.

The victim checked with the security team at Broadway at the Beach, who told her the video cameras were down for a system update during the time of her moped being stolen.

Later Friday, a second moped was reported stolen from an apartment complex on Greens Boulevard. The victim stated he used a chain to secure the two-wheeler, while he went inside his apartment to "use the restroom." In the meantime, he heard a ‘pop' outside. He went out to find his moped gone and the chain cut.

Myrtle Beach Police responded to the report of a third stolen moped.

On Saturday, June 28, a woman told police she placed a lock cable on her moped before entering an IHOP restaurant. Upon her return, she told police she noticed the moped to have been stolen.

An IHOP manager said he reviewed security cameras but was unable to see any activity due to a foggy lens.

Another moped was reported stolen on Saturday; this time, from a Food Lion located on South Kings Highway.

A man told police he went inside the grocery store. Within 10 minutes, the moped was gone, according to a police report.

"Surveillance footage does not currently reach the parking lot," was stated in the report.

On Sunday, miles away from the Food Lion store on South Kings Highway, a fifth moped was reported stolen at a Big Lots store.

A woman parked her moped on the sidewalk, in front of the Big Lots store, according to a police report. When the woman finished her shift, she said she returned to find her moped nowhere to be found.

On Monday morning, June 30, a man told police his motorcycle broke down in the area of Broadway and Collins streets. He said he parked his bike in a nearby parking and walked to a friends' house to use a phone.

When he returned to tow the motorcycle, he observed an empty parking space. The victim reported the two-wheeler stolen.

Information and descriptions of all six vehicles were entered into the National Crime Information Center database by Myrtle Beach police.
