Police appeal for help to locate stolen car modified for wheelchair access

Police are are seeking public assistance to help locate a 2009 silver Toyota corolla sedan, registration number 479LWR which was stolen from a residence at Sunnybank yesterday afternoon.

The car has been specially modified for wheelchair access and was last seen with a wheelchair attached to the roof at a Dyson Avenue residence at about 1.15pm.

Detective Senior Constable Matt Symons said the owners are desperate for the return of the vehicle and wheelchair as their mobility is greatly diminished.


“The car has been specially fitted out to assist the couple to go about their daily activities but without it, everyday tasks are much more difficult,” Senior Constable Symons said.

“We are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed suspicious behavior in the near vicinity yesterday afternoon, or who may have information to assist the investigation to contact us.”
