Lewiston man appeals for return of wheelchair

The Associated Press

LEWISTON — An 80-year-old Lewiston man is appealing to the public for help in getting back the motorized wheelchair he says was stolen from right under his bedroom window.

Dana Huard reported early Sunday morning that his electric wheelchair was stolen from in front of his apartment building. Police Sgt. Michael Whalen said Huard reported the motorized chair stolen at 3:45 a.m.

The case remained under investigation Wednesday.

The chair cost several thousand dollars and had been purchased within the past year.

Huard's daughter tells the Sun Journal that the chair is her father's lifeline since failing eyesight prevents him from driving a car.
