Sheriff’s Office Busy with Recovering Stolen Vehicles
(Jefferson County) A vehicle that was taken sometime on April 25th at a home in the 4500 block of Gravois Village Center in High Ridge has since been recovered by authorities in St. Louis City.
Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Grant Bissell has more.
In a separate incident, deputies were able to recover another stolen vehicle that was found on someone’s property in the 1400 block of Fawn Drive in Festus on April 27th.
Bissell mentions the car was noticed by deputies after they responded to the residence on a welfare check.
According to Bissell the suspect told the deputy he did not have the money to buy the car so the owner loaned the vehicle to him until he paid it off.
The stolen vehicle was than towed and eventually returned back to the registered owner.
