HUNTINGTON — Police in Milton arrested a man Sunday night in connection with the alleged theft of a motorized wheelchair belonging to a disabled veteran.

Kevin Bradley Call, 41, of Nitro, is facing charges of grand larceny and receiving and transferring stolen property, according to a Facebook post from the Milton Police Department.

Police said the veteran’s motorized wheelchair was taken March 24 while it was parked outside of the veteran’s apartment complex on Church Street in Milton.
