Las Vegas veteran outraged after mobility scooter stolen

By Elizabeth Gadley. CREATED Aug 14, 2015

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A local veteran is outraged after someone stole his electric scooter.

Gary Brewer can't believe someone would stoop so low as to steal a retired man's mobility scooter.
"I've heard people use the word violated when they've had stuff stolen before but I think it goes beyond that. I mean obviously being in a retirement home and a scooter the person who has it has got to be disabled, or you wouldn't have it.  So I would think you're pretty low, I mean real low to take something like that," explains Brewer. 
The disabled vet has had a hard time walking since he was hit by a car and dragged behind it a few years ago.
"Now I'm lucky if I can get down to the mailbox and back," says Brewer.
And because of his poor eyesight, he's not allowed to drive, so his scooter was his only way to get around.
According to Brewer, the scooter was in his carport at the Shadow Mountain Community Mobile Home Park when he went to bed. When he woke up and went out to check the mail it was gone.
Brewer says it's a Century brand electric mobility scooter. It's black with three wheels and has a basket in front.  It's about ten years old and has some minor front-end damage.
Brewer doesn't have any family living in the area to help him out and being on a fixed income, he can't afford to buy a new scooter. He has this message for the thief or thieves who took his only form of transportation:
"Either bring it back, no questions asked or I hate to put it this way ... may god forgive you," said Brewer.
Brewer has filed a police report but he say he realizes how busy the police are. He's really just hoping someone saw something at his mobile home park near Lamb Boulevard and Vegas Valley Drive or that the crooks develop a conscience.

Retired veteran receives brand new scooter

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Aug 28, 2015 - UPDATED: Aug 29, 2015

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Two weeks ago someone stole Gary Brewer's electric scooterright out of his carport but now he has a new scooter, ramp and money to visit family.

6 Nellis airmen from the Red Horse squadron pitched in to build Brewer a new ramp at his home near Lamb Boulevard and Vegas Valley Drive.
Home Depot and Lowes donated the supplies for the ramp.
Brewer says he couldn't be happier. The airmen say it was the least they could do for a fellow service member.
"It shocked me, cause after the life I had, I'd rather stay away from people and figure they are all evil and after yesterday and today I'm going to have to change my outlook," Brewer said.
As for the scooter, Big Dog Plumbing bought him a new one that was delivered Saturday. The company also presented him a check for $500 so he could visit his family.
"I'm enjoying the heck out of it," Brewer said regarding his new scooter. "I mean I'd like to say the other day I want to curse the people who stole mine but this is much better shape much newer, much nicer so instead of cursing them I'd rather thank them."
