Paralympic basketball dreams crushed as custom wheelchair, vehicle stolen

(Calgary Police Service)

Calgary police are trying to locate a custom wheelchair and vehicle, ahead of the victim’s tryouts for the Canadian Paralympic Basketball team at the end of July.

They were stolen sometime between 10 p.m. Friday and 8:30 a.m. Saturday from a secure parkade on Inglewood Park SE.

The wheelchair is specially designed for basketball, and it would take four months to have a new chair made.

The vehicle is a 2006 Dodge Magnum R/T with the license plate BVH 0737 and has a special lever mounted near the steering wheel that disables the breaks and gas pedals.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Calgary police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers:
