A case of theft solved thanks to viewers and members of the community.
Tuesday we told you about an iPad that had been stolen right out the hands of disabled young man.
That evening that device was returned to its rightful owner.
For Matthew Lavoie, that iPad wasn't just a tablet, it was a way for him to communicate with others. Matthew is developmentally handicapped and has trouble speaking.
The theft happened around 10:15 Tuesday morning at a Walgreens on the South Hill. Police say a man walked up to the car Thomas was in and stole the iPad.
Thomas' mother, Lara Lavoie said her son was listening to Christmas music in the parked car when the thief somehow convinced him to open the car door. That's when she thinks the tablet was stolen. Thomas uses a $200 app on the device to help him communicate.
"He's so trusting he never would have thought in a million years that someone was going to do that," said Lara Lavoie.
