Crime reports: 1980 Corvette stolen from local dealership

In mid-April, officers with the Vicksburg Police Department responded to George Carr Buick-Cadillac-GMC in regard to the attempt someone made to steal a 1980 Chevrolet Corvette from the dealership’s backlot.

Monday, officers were called again, this time to take a report that someone had actually stolen the same vehicle.

At 7:42 a.m., officers responded to the dealership on South Frontage road in reference to the stolen vehicle. They also took a report from the dealership on parts that were stolen off of several other vehicles.

Officials with the department said investigators were reviewing surveillance video from the dealership for leads on the individual who stole the vehicle.
