Cops say the Cleveland staffer told them Francona had parked his 2018 Genuine MC Buddy 170i black scooter on Friday night and took the ignition key — but noticed it was gone the following day … leading authorities to believe the suspected thief had pushed or tampered with the motorbike to take it.
According to the police report, Francona claims he did not give anyone permission to use it — and cops have now launched an investigation into the matter.
So far, no suspects have been named and no arrests have been made … though cops noted in the police report there were several surveillance cameras on the street where his scooter was taken.
