RUSSELL SPRINGS - A pickup truck reported stolen from the parking lot of Brooke & Buc's Roadhouse last Saturday was recovered Sunday.
Russell Springs Police Officer Jeremy West investigated the theft of a red 2004 model GMC half-ton truck belonging to Alex Hancock of Columbia.
Police Chief Joseph Irvin said the keys had been left in the truck making it an easy target for the thief.
Unlocked vehicles at two businesses were rifled though in Russell Springs this Tuesday but the only thing reported missing, a coat, was located and returned to the owner.
Officer Chasity Shirley reported a source had related the identity of that thief to her and that the investigation was continuing.
Irvin strongly encouraged motorists to take their keys and lock their vehicles this time of the year to prevent thieves from "car shopping."
He asked that anyone with information related to these or other recent crimes to call the Russell Springs Police Department at 270-866-3636 or the Russell County 911 Dispatch Center at 270-343-6600.
