Public's help sought in returning girl's stolen wheelchair

Customized chair was taken from family's porch in Aloha


Washington County sheriff's deputies are seeking the public's help in locating a wheelchair belonging to a 9-year-old Aloha girl that was stolen off her family's porch in June.

Deputies responded to a residence in the 5400 block of Southwest 152nd Avenue in Aloha, where the girl's father told deputies someone took his daughter's wheelchair off of their front porch earlier this summer.

The theft occurred in early June, but the father assumed children took it for a joyride and were going to return it, said Sgt. Bob Ray, sheriff's office spokesman. The Colours in Motion-brand, lightweight pediatric non-motorized chair, which is a secondary wheelchair custom built for the man's daughter, has not been returned. The chair has a metallic purple and green paint scheme with stars and moons on the seat and has a replacement value of $6,000, Ray said.

Deputies are asking for the public's help to return the wheelchair to the child. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at 503-629-0111.
