Police in Southern Buskerud contacted the man after colleagues in Oslo found an abandoned scooter in a parking garage on Tuesday night.

A quick check in the stolen goods register showed that the 1989 model Suzuki 50 had been reported missing in 1993 by a Buskerud resident.

“He seemed quite surprised,” police officer Håkon Grøttland told news agency NTB.

“He had forgotten the whole thing.”
