Sheriff’s Office Recovers Stolen Car

KSAL Staff - October 1, 2013 11:34 am

A vehicle left on Interstate-70 is ravaged by thieves.

Saline County Sheriff’s Deputies recovered a stolen car, after someone destroyed the interior and stole all four tires and wheels from a 2011 Chevy Impala.

Ronald Amaker of Junction City left his car on the shoulder of eastbound I-70, Saturday afternoon after a flat tire.

He told deputies he could not afford a tow at the time and planned to come back a few days later to retrieve it.

Monday at 5pm, he reported the car stolen when he returned to mile post #250 and it was no longer there.

Around 7pm a citizen in the county contacted the Sheriff’s Office when they saw a damaged vehicle in the 400 block of Fairchilds Road.

Deputies say the dash was destroyed as well as the steering column. The trunk of the car was also damaged after someone apparently tried to pry it open.

Sheriff Glen Kochanowski estimated the vehicle was driven about 4 or 5 miles from I-70 to that remote spot.

Total loss and damage is listed at $5,350.

The sheriff did nothing had they been patrolling that area they would have found it but once again a taxpayer had to do their job.

Did you expect anything else than taxpayer assistance. They cannot get those high dollar 4 wheel drive trucks dirty.
