Mangiarano tried to demand money by passing a note to a teller, local newspaper the Austin American-Statesman reported.
The note read, "This is a robbery. Please give me all your 100s and 50s in an envelope and everything will be ok." The victim told officers that she was afraid of what Mangiarano might do, so she complied and gave him the money. The threat was successful and the teen was loaded with cash, yet he chose an electric Uber-owned Jump scooter as a means of escape.
Electric scooters have become widely used in the last couple of years, with companies like Uber and Bird dominating the market, collecting personal info about those who rent their vehicles. Although police officers were able to acquire surveillance video from a business nearby to back up their request for information about Mangiarano, the case raises concerns about direct access to users’ private information.
