Police arrest man in connection with mo-ped theft, but looking for suspects involved in other mo-ped larcenies

A man was arrested Thursday in connection with one theft after multiple mo-ped larcenies occurred Wednesday.

Police were still investigating two other mo-ped theft incidents from Wednesday on Friday morning.

Rodney Wayne Rowan, 32, was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, according to jail records, and details of the arrest were not available.

Officers were called about the mo-ped theft, which police said involved Rowan, on Wednesday about 12 p.m. to a hotel at 1501 S. Ocean Blvd. where two 18-year-old men told police two mo-peds they rented were taken from the parking lot, authorities said.

The victims told police they parked the two blue, VIP Future Champion mo-peds about 5 a.m. Wednesday, and the mo-peds were gone by about 11:45 a.m. later that day.
