A van was stolen from the Orangeburg County Disabilities and Special Needs board, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

A woman reported Monday afternoon that she was conducting inventory for the board when she noticed that a 2006 white Dodge Caravan was missing.

She confirmed that no employees were using the van and then she called law enforcement.

She said the last time the vehicle was known to be at the Magnolia Street location was on April 1.

There were no signs of forced entry into the gate where the board stores the vehicles, she said. She had the only set of keys for the van.

The van is valued at $1,500.
