Wheelchair van stolen from driveway of Burholme house

Overnight, Saturday into Sunday, the family's minivan, specially-equipped for Tim's wheelchair, was stolen from right out in front of their house in the 1100 block of Shelmire Street.

    Wheelchair van stolen from driveway of Burholme house
    The Sulock family's specially-equipped van is always parked out in front of their home on Shelmire Street in the Burholme section of the city. When they woke Sunday morning, it was gone. For Tim Sulock, who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, that van was his way to be out in the world.
