STOUGHTON (CBS) – Stoughton police are looking for a thief who stole an iPad that belonged to a boy with special needs.

Ryan Cordoso’s parents had put the tablet in the car to charge the battery after the family dog chewed through the house charger.

Police say Cordoso is autistic and uses the iPad to communicate to his parents.

But while the iPad was charging, someone broke into the car and took it.

“When they went out to get it after it had charged, it was gone,” Dept. Police Chief Rob Devine.

Stoughton officers have not found the crook. But they did go beyond the call of duty, chipping in to replace the stolen tablet.

“He had a great big smile,” Dept. Chief Devine said of Cordoso when they have him the replacement. “It was a nice thing to see. Obviously his mom was very appreciative.”
