A report was filed on Sunday about the wheelchair being stolen, and photos of it were then posted on the police department's Facebook page. Later, a detective was able to recover the wheelchair and return it to the victim after he received a tip from a citizen that it had been located at a local scrap yard.

The investigator viewed surveillance video from the scrap yard and determined it was sold there by King and Wilson, according to the post.

Both suspects have been charged with theft over $2,500. Wilson has been taken into custody at the Bradley County Jail and King will be arrested after he receives medical treatment.
