Suspicious Vehicle Turns Out Stolen

web posted August 16, 2014

TRENTON   The owner of a hunting club on Vann Road called the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office Thursday morning after riding by the gate to the property and finding a silver Toyota Rav4 abandoned at the gate and appeared to be stuck.

Once a deputy arrived he ran the tag on the truck through dispatch and it was found to be stolen out of Augusta, Georgia. An incident report did not indicate when the SUV was reported stolen.

The property owner told the deputy that he had dug a 4-foot deep ditch on either side of the gate to prevent anyone from driving around the gate to gain access. Something the driver of the SUV did not see until it was too late. The vehicle was stuck and had damage to the front of the truck from hitting the ditch.

An investigator arrived on the scene to process the truck for evidence, including being able to lift fingerprints from the SUV, including the hood where it looked as though persons in the SUV tried to push it out of the ditch before abandoning it.

The investigator reported finding an assortment of tools inside the SUV which are believed to be stolen. Also found was stereo speakers, amp, an iPod with the name Christine on it and a Verizon Blackberry.

Also recovered was a piece of paper with a handwritten Georgia phone number and a key to a GM vehicle, which were found laying on the ground beside the SUV.

After the vehicle was processed it was towed from the scene. The Richmond County Sheriff's Office was notified of the find so they could contact the owner.
