Stolen wheelchair recovered
The wheelchair stolen from Marilyn Merrett's patio has been returned.
Merrett decried the thieves who took the chair used by both her 88-year-old war vet father, and her 28-year-old daughter who has undergone numerous surgeries to deal with brain tumours. She appealed for the wheelchair's return.
It was found abandoned at Mill Lake, muddy but mostly undamaged, and turned in to police, who have returned it to its rightful owner.
"Somebody just decided they wanted to go for a joy ride," Merrett speculated. "I'm just pleased to death that it's back home."
A replacement chair would have cost $1,500.
