“I paid £300 for it, there is no way that I can afford to buy another one.
“I am just totally devastated that this kind of thing would happen.
“I know that I shouldn’t have left the keys in it but you just wouldn’t expect someone to take it.”
Garry — who also lives in Fintry — alerted police to the theft and an investigation has been launched.
He said the scooter, which is electrically-powered, was fully charged prior to him taking it out.
He thinks that the charge will have run out by now — rendering the scooter “useless”.
He added: “It won’t have charge left in it now, the charger is still at my house.
“It won’t be worth anything to anyone now.
“Hopefully I get it back — I don’t know what I am going to do.”
A police spokesman said: “Police Scotland can confirm it is dealing with the reported theft of a blue threewheeled mobility scooter from outside a house in Findowrie Street, Dundee, about 3pm on November 10.
“If anyone has any information which can help our inquiry, especially in finding the mobility scooter, please call 101 or speak to any police officer. Our reference is CR/29749/17.”
