The wheels and tires were stolen from the Southeast New Mexico Veterans Transport Network van. The van is one of six vehicles; however, it is the only one that was built to carry the handicapped. Because of this, the wheels and tires are an odd size and hard to find. The organization has to have it back in service by Wednesday.

Southeastern New Mexico Veterans’ Transportation Network and all those whom they support have become the victims of a crime. Greg Neal, vice president of SENMVTN, reported to the Legislative and Military Affairs Committee that they found their handicapped van up on blocks Monday morning.

The incident was reported to the police around 5:45 a.m. Monday, although the van was all right when last seen on Saturday.
