“A prolific moped offender” teen was sentenced to an eight month detention and training order at Willesden Magistrates’ court on Thursday.
The boy, 17, pleaded guilty to 14 motor offences, including theft of a moped, at the same court on July 6.
The court heard how the teen was one of three males seen stealing a moped in St John’s Way, Wembley, on May 22.
Cops soon arrived and spotted the group gathered around a moped in nearby Acacia Avenue.
But when the 17-year-old saw the police approaching he tried to mount the pavement and escape, it was said.

Pc Jake Bhanji, who led the investigation, said: “The defendant is a prolific moped offender who despite attempting to evade police on numerous occasions has now been brought to justice for his actions.”
