Disabled Springfield resident looking for stolen mobility scooter


A disabled Springfield man is hoping police can identify the thieves who stole his new mobility scooter, valued at $1,200.

72-year-old David Marcil told 22News he needs knee replacement surgery, and the scooter was one of two he had purchased for both him and his wife. He said the new scooter and a BMX bike were stolen from his unlocked garage this past August.
He said he’s frustrated police haven’t been able to find the stolen items, or the people responsible. Marcil told 22News, “She’s got a bad knee, and I also have a bad knee. We’re both in our seventies, and we’re on a fixed income. It doesn’t seem like they really care”

Marcil said he’s since spent hundreds of dollars on a new security system with cameras, and has also added a lock to the garage.
