Lubbock man pleas for his stolen wheelchair back

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock man needs your help. He says his wheelchair was stolen from his own front yard and he is begging for it back.

Dale Rogers couldn't have been happier when he received his electric wheelchair back in February, but, on Thursday, that all changed. Rogers says he went to run an errand in his truck and was only gone for 5 minutes. "When I got back it was gone, my wheelchair was gone," he said.

Rogers filed a police report and is adjusting to life back to his old wheelchair. "I have to get around in this and it's a little hard," he said.  

Rogers says the electric wheelchair is worth about $6,000.  He received it through Medicaid, and they only offer new ones every five years. "I don't know what is going to happen, I've talked to them and I have to get a copy of the police report and maybe they will do something but I'm not real sure yet," said Rogers.

All Rogers hopes for is that someone will bring it back. "I need it, bring it back, no questions asked. If you have it just park it outside the truck late at night and I'll see it the next morning no questions asked just bring it back," said Rogers.

Rogers lives at Hickory Street Apartments on 16th Street. If you have any information about the missing electric wheelchair call you are asked to please call Crime Line at 741-1000.
