Disabled veteran Ken Blackmon was without his specially equipped van after it was stolen at East 74th Street and Wade Park Avenue.
The theft, which happened in the middle of the night last weekend, was caught on video by a security camera. However, the picture is taken from a distance and the camera, which does not record continuously, did not catch the bad guy getting in the van.
Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Authority police reviewed security tapes and have interviewed people.
Monday, a community activist called 19 Action News reported Ed Gallek and said he had seen the van. He called CMHA Police, and they were able to locate the vehicle.
They're still waiting to give Blackmon the good news.
