Public’s help needed in locating stolen Corvette

Investigators with the Vicksburg Police Department are asking for the public’s help in locating a white 1980 Chevrolet Corvette reported stolen Monday from a local car 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.

And, based on surveillance video from the dealership, the individual who stole the vehicle matches the general description of the individual who tried to steal the car in April. Police have described the individual as a white male wearing a dark hoodie.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Vicksburg Police Department at 601-636-2511.
