Pre-Teens Tempted By Scissor Lift

Equipment owners cautionned

Curiousity got the better of a pair of Barrie boys who came upon a scissor lift at a south end parking lot – with the keys still in it. They were able to get it started and move it around before a passerby scared them off. They took the keys with them and returned that night, but Barrie Police were waiting for them. They were let off with a warning and their parents were advised about what happened. Police advising owners of such equipment ensure it is properly secured tp prevent misuse and possible theft.
