They had a problem in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with someone vandalising e-scooters. More than 140 of them were damaged so police set up some security camers for a sting operation. 

They didn't have to wait long as a camera captured this guy cutting the brakes on a pair of scooters in the middle of the night. He was caught with two pairs of wire cutters and one glove. Not only was he cutting the brakes, but also placing white stickers over the QR codes that people use to activate the things. He has since been charged with criminal mischief, resisting arrest and "loitering or prowling".

Chances are, he won't be riding a scooter to his court date.
