The One About the Burglar Who Tried To Flee While Riding Stolen Wheelchair
Around 3:30 Thursday morning, Stanley McQuery, 54, broke into an apartment in San Diego. The resident of that apartment -- a 79-year-old amputee named William Ballard -- was sitting in his wheelchair when he confronted Stanley. The burglar pushed William off his wheelchair and stole his cell phone. Stanley then fled the scene while riding the stolen electric wheelchair. He didn't get far, however. Police caught Stanley two blocks away from the victim's apartment. He then ditched the wheelchair and tried to run away, but was bitten by a police dog and taken into custody. He's charged with robbery, burglary, obstruction and elder abuse. He remains jailed on $105,000 bond.
