Wheelchair ramp stolen

Honolulu police and CrimeStoppers are turning to the public to help recover a wheelchair ramp that was taken from the garage of a Kaimuki Avenue home. Witnesses told investigators that a red SUV pulled into the driveway at around 8 a.m. on Nov. 3, and a male suspect removed the new, six-foot portable wheelchair ramp from the covered parking area. Police say the ramp belonged to a 15-year-old girl with multiple disabilities, and was used to help the family transport her to community activities.


The vehicle is described as a “shiny red” Jeep Wrangler with a black canvas top. The male suspect is described as a blonde Caucasian in his late 20s, about 5’10” tall and weighing between 160 and 180 pounds.

Witnesses reported that a local woman was also in the vehicle.

Anonymous calls may be made to CrimeStoppers at 955-8300, or at *CRIME on AT&T, Nextel and Verizon cellular phones.
