Ballard resident has moped stolen from home


Elliot Padilla sent us an email to say that Ballard local, Billy, found the moped wrapped in a tarp and locked to a tree on April 3. Billy had seen an Instagram post and contacted Padilla at work to reunite the moped with its owner. Thank you to everyone who helped in the search!

Original Post:
