Ex-con accused of stealing from disabled man

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man recently released from prison in Minnesota is accused of stealing money and a handicap-accessible van from a quadriplegic.

Records show 50-year-old David Paul Johnson had been living with the disabled man and his brother in Bloomington since his release from a state correctional facility Dec. 28.

A complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court Friday says Johnson learned Larry Buhl had more than $5,000 in cash in his wallet that he planned to deposit in the bank. The complaint says Johnson took the money and Buhl’s van on or about Feb. 2. He later called Buhl’s attorney to confess, but didn’t surrender to authorities.

One of Buhl’s friends saw Johnson driving the van this week and called 911. The Star Tribune says officers chased Johnson until he crashed the van in Edina.
