Fund set up for man whose car was stolen


A friend of the man whose vehicle was stolen and found Monday in the Smith River Monday started a fundraising account to help the victim - a 22-year-old single father who cares for three children - buy a car.

andquot;He's just somebody that needs some help,andquot; said Bob Sumner, who is friends with the victim, Levi Cooley. Sumner said Cooley is a good man who just needs some help getting another vehicle.

andquot;He's taking care of three boys and wants to go to college to become a probation officer,andquot; Sumner said. andquot;He's just a good person in a bad situation.andquot;

Cooley's 1991 Toyota 4Runner was stolen from the Totem Villa apartments off U.S. Hwy. 101 late Sunday night or early Monday morning. Law enforcement found the SUV in the Smith River Monday near Walker Hole.

Sumner said people wishing to make a donation to the account can do so at Tri Counties Bank either under Sumner or Cooley's name.
