    Local renty owners and locals who own scooters have been busted doing the most!! (1) was the said renty reported missing or stolen by the owner of the company or the client who rented it? Let me guess they will say they was home sleeping at the time and didn’t know the boyfriend took it “lies” everyone involved. It’s time to clamp down on most locally owned car rentals and scooters riders.
