POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – The Polk County Sheriff’s office is asking for the public’s help finding 22-year-old James McCloud from Lakeland.
McCloud is accused of stealing his aunt’s wheelchair, which she uses to get around.
McCloud’s aunt reported the theft earlier this week, telling deputies someone stole her wheelchair from the car port that’s attached to her residence.
She said she had no clue who the culprit was, but told deputies her nephew’s girlfriend had recently broken her leg during a bike accident.
Deputies later found the wheelchair at the girlfriend’s residence, but McCloud was nowhere in sight.
The girlfriend told deputies McCloud gave her the wheelchair, but did not mention it was stolen.
The wheelchair was returned to its owner, but deputies still have not been able to find McCloud.
They’ve issued a warrant for his arrest and say he’s currently out on bond from a narcotics arrest from earlier this month.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts has been asked to contact the Polk County Sheriff’s Office at 863-298-6200.
