He says he's not sure how he's going to get around without being able to transport his chair.
Darrell Jones, robbery victim, "if you'd have walked up and said 'Darryl I really need this', I would've have given it to you. You know I would've replaced it, on my own. Or I would have found somebody, that would get you one, you know, but don't steal mine."
Darrell Jones says the carrier cost about $1,000.
He says right now, he can't afford to replace it.
