"On April 28, while I was in rehab at Turning Point, my brother notified me that my 2009 Jeep Liberty, silver in color, which was in his care and custody, had been stolen," Baskins told WXIN.
The officer wrote down the wrong vehicle model on his police report, Baskins said, which has complicated filing insurance forms. Baskins has since obtained a correct report and has sent it to his lender.
The former military veteran said he wants to get his Jeep back and finish paying for it.
"I would take any work," Baskins told WXIN. "I work for $10 an hour. I might be 60 years old, but I'm an old Marine and I guarantee I'd give the young guys a run for their money."
To do that, Baskins needs wheels.
"Without a vehicle it's hard for me to get a job," Baskins told the television station. "I've got a list of jobs I've applied for. I probably have about 1,200 on my phone."
