MULTI-COUNTY CAR THEFT INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY

An investigation is underway this morning in both Ohio and Marshall counties, involving several stolen cars and a chase. Deputies from both counties say several reports of stolen cars in Ohio County kicked it off, and then more were reported in Marshall County, where things then got interesting. Both sheriff’s departments were working together… searching for a suspect in the case near Cameron… when they came across a vehicle with a man sitting inside. They ordered him out, but he refused to budge. He then took off. They chased him but lost him, but they say they got a good look at his face. Although they have tracked down stolen vehicles and collected other evidence, they still have not been able to make an arrest. If you have any information, you are asked to call the Ohio or Marshall county sheriff’s departments.
