Lancaster man wants stolen wheelchair returned

Posted: Updated:

Why would someone steal a motorized wheelchair?

Markuis David Smith was still asking himself that very question Thursday night. He has relied on his custom, motorized wheelchair to get him around for over two years, and now it's gone thanks to a thief.

"Words have no description of how angry I am," Smith said.

Someone stole the $9,000 wheelchair from Smith's front porch, in the first block West Frederick Street, between 6:30 am and noon on Monday.

"That's everything, that's my legs, my feet, my support," Smith said.

Smith, 38, also had a message for the thief.

"Whoever you are, I feel bad for you, for real," Smith said.

In an effort to track down the wheelchair, Lancaster police entered it into a country-wide database.

AmVets Post 19 in Lancaster is stepping up to help. They planned to give Smith a slightly used motorized wheelchair Friday morning.
