Thieves Steal Huntington Veteran's Wheel Chair

Huntington Police are investigating the theft of a manual wheelchair from an amputee's front yard around West 23rd Street. The incident occurred between about 11 p.m. July 31 and 1:30 a.m. August 1.

Vietnam Veteran Michael Thompson found the chair missing when he returned in his truck after taking care of some errands. "It's a good thing I had my crutches," Thompson said.

Huntington Police arrived in less than five minutes to take the report.

The chair contains a special gel cushion tailored to the user's comfort to prevent his leg from going numb.

Anyone who has seen the missing chair should contact the Huntington Police Department, 304-696-4444.
