Good news! Kendra got her car back!

Today, SCPD recovered a stolen car specifically retrofitted to be accessible for a young, paralyzed Scotts Valley woman.
This morning Kendra’s best friend spotted the stolen car in a Santa Cruz neighborhood near 3rd and Cliff Street. She called SCPD. Officers Teaford and Emigh responded immediately and recovered the car.

The fully accessible car has a ramp with ropes and pulleys are visible through the passenger side window. "For someone to do that is so sad. It's designed to help someone more than just a regular car," said Kendra.
In short order, SCPD Officers returned the car to Kendra. We are pleased to report that the car is in working order. Kendra drove her car home right away.
