Teenager completes shoplift on 'Hoverboard', calling Marty McFly

New-age crime sees London youngster steal a bunch of Lucozade on his 'hoverboard', aka LED skateboard

While members of the media and public are nicknaming these self-balancing skateboards (or E Boards) as hoverboards, we've seen the first recorded incident of what you could call 'new-age crime', spotted on Gizmodo.




This screenshot of a since-removed video shows a south-west London youngster stealing a package of Lucozade energy drink from a supermarket, smoothly riding his way out through the door without a care in the world.


Riding his LED board in and out of the frame is just about all that this video contained, apparently. Due to it being taken down we can't show you the whole thing, but above you will see a snap that Gizmodo was able to take before the London Metropolitan Police took it down.
