INDIANAPOLIS - Two brothers on Indianapolis' near-west side had no way to leave their home Wednesday after their wheelchair ramp was stolen overnight, police said.
Officers were called to a home in the 1800 block of West Maryland Street just after 5 a.m.
Raymond Garner, 49, who uses a wheelchair, told police that someone stole his aluminum folding ramp overnight.
Garner and his brother, Dennis Garner, who also uses a wheelchair, live in the home together, and the ramp was their only way to get in and out.
The ramp, which measures 8 feet by 40 feet, cost $600, Dennis Garner, said.
Police offered resources to help the Garners get a temporary ramp, but the brothers ended up getting much more.
The thieves also took an aluminum screen door.
