Published 3:28 pm Tuesday, May 3, 2022

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office recovered two stolen vehicles last week, beginning with a pickup truck at 5:30 p.m. on April 28.

According to sheriff’s office reports, a black 2019 Ford F250 was parked on Silver Creek Drive off of Warrior’s Trail.

An initial check of the truck’s VIN number by Deputy Robert Jackson did not show a record, but Sheriff Martin Pace said a separate database determined it was a vehicle stolen from an address in Jackson in 2020. The truck was recovered and the owner was notified as well as the insurance company, which seized the vehicle because it had already paid out the claim.
