LANSING, Mich. — Lime electric scooters are back in Lansing and East Lansing.

Earlier this week, Gotcha Electric Scooters were dropped off on the campus of Michigan State University.

Fox 47 asked university police what happened to the Bird and Lime scooters left behind in the impound lot last year.

Turns out, many are still there.

"Currently we do have scooters that are impounded from the year before. I believe that there is 37 -- two of those bird scooters and 35 are lime scooters," says Captain MSU Police Department Doug Monette.

MSU police say the owners of the scooters will have to get them out of the impound.

There are no plans to do anything with them at this point.
