DANVILLE -- A nonprofit was robbed and now its leaders are warning you about a possible scam. The Vermilion County Handicapped Association builds wheelchair ramps for families in need.

For funding, each year it raffles off a motorcycle. But recently, someone stole 200 tickets. Now leaders are telling the community to be careful who they buy from.

"We just didn't want people to buy these tickets thinking they had a chance on this prize, just to find out that they don't. I don't want people to get scammed," Handicapped Association President Kip Sullivan said.

If you're suspicious, check the ticket number. Numbers 1201 through 1400 were the ones stolen.
