(WBBM) - A disabled man from Park Forest is waiting to get his customized van back after it was stolen last week and then, recovered last night.

LISTEN: Newsradio 780′s Regine Schlesinger Reports


On his 50th birthday over a week ago, Randy Iliff parked his special conversion van at the Richton Park Metra station, as he does every day.

But, when he got back from work, the van was gone.

At first, he thought it was a birthday prank, but soon it became clear that the van with a wheelchair ramp, charger and ham radio equipment had been stolen.

Now police have recovered it in Harvey. But Iliff tells Newsradio 780 he’s being told he has to pay $300 in tickets and towing costs. He doesn’t know yet what condition the van’s in and, in any case, thinks it’s unfair to charge him since the van had been stolen.
