Thief takes disabled woman’s car in Gladwin

When Terressa Carson obtained a phone from her partner to tell her that their white 2009 Ford Concentration was stolen, she assumed he was joking.

He wasn’t. The automobile was gone, as effectively as Carson’s walker, clinical papers, everlasting handicapped sticker and her husband’s wallet with a current financial institution withdrawal.

“Who steals a handicap (person’s) car?” stated Carson, of Gladwin.

Carson termed Jim’s Automotive NAPA in Gladwin, exactly where her spouse performs, asking him to deliver house some packing containers. He took the boxes out to the automobile and returned to the store to seize a several far more objects.


When he returned to the vehicle, it was long gone.

Just after submitting a report with the Gladwin County Sheriff’s Business office, the pair altered their door locks and flagged their credit and financial institution playing cards along with the car’s identification in situation the thief tried using to offer it.

For Carson, who was still left forever disabled right after a motor vehicle accident final year, the motor vehicle represented some liberty after the crash remaining her with a shattered leg and a broken foot and ribs.

The few has another car or truck, but the missing motor vehicle was just one she could simply get in and out of with her walker.

She does not recognize why a person would steal a auto that has a lot more than 200,000 miles on it and is rusted.

“I never see why they want it,” she claimed. “I want they would just give it back again or at least (give back again) my stuff.”

Carson asks everyone with data to call regulation enforcement. She said the handicapped sticker is numbered C265 and expires in August 2026. There is rust at the bottom of the doorways. She hopes that a person could have had a doorbell that picked up some exercise or anyone observed some thing. Contact Gladwin County Sheriff’s Business office at (989) 426-9284.
