Albany --  Someone snatched a disabled man's grocery money, as he was on the way to the store in his wheelchair.

David Strickland going into Harvey's Supermarket at Slappey and Gillionville around 1:00PM Wednesday, when a man in a car pulled up next to him and snatched money from his front shirt pocket.

Strickland, who's on disability, just cashed his check Tuesday and was carrying an envelope with more than three hundred dollars inside.
