Concord police are searching for a man who took a hearing aid belonging to a 2-year-old boy.

The child lost his cochlear implant Tuesday night when he crashed a scooter at his apartment complex on Monument Boulevard. A witness says a man picked up the implant and ran off with it.

The device cost $3,000.

Police say it is possible the man believed the device was a cellular Bluetooth ear piece.
