A Chevy Camaro reported stolen over the weekend – was actually towed off the interstate after some miscommunications.
Saline County Undersheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that Auto House Towing, 565 Westport Blvd., contacted authorities on Monday after seeing reports in the media about the stolen Camaro.
The car which was left near the Assaria Falun Exit with a flat tire – was towed away from mile post #82 on I-135 early Monday after a wrecker was ordered for a car that hit a deer near mile post #83.
The driver of damaged vehicle was able to limp it off the Interstate at exit 90 and coast into the parking lot at Casey’s on 9th and Magnolia. Once there they contacted authorities.
Deputies say the wrecker operator, who had fallen asleep after taking the first request, misunderstood and thought he had two vehicles to tow , one at Casey’s – the other still on the Interstate.
A Camaro was stolen from the side of the road while the owner headed back to town for tools. Saline County Undersheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that Samuel Johannes of Salina pulled his 2010 Chevy Camaro onto the shoulder of I-135 with flat tire, Sunday afternoon at 12:30. When he returned to mile marker #82 near the Assaria-Falun exit the car was gone. The silver 2-door Camaro with black stripes is tagged with Kansas license plate 492-JUB.
